    I'm trying to set up a local server for friends for a lan party and I've been looking everywhere and I can't find crap for how to do it on linux. Any help would be appreciated.

    Ignore the haters telling you to switch to Windows: Linux is perfect for hosting servers.
    Before I link you to a guide, or write one, what distro is your server running?

    Honestly, Linux is the way to go. Most website publishing services use Linux as the key feature for running websites. I'm 99.9% that the red guy uses Linux to host this website and the servers this community has today. To be honest with you, when I was starting to make servers back in the day I used Windows and let me tell you, Windows itself takes way to many of the ram just to run... windows, then I switched over to Linux and my servers ran way much better. Like a 2% boost than before. I would agree with @Sticky Bandit statement on how Linux is good for hosting servers and disagree on Trinity statement.

    This will get you started.

    I would suggest automating the server start and stop with some script, and get some sort of "crash catcher", so whenever the server crashes it will automatically restart.
    Use to get any additional information, like configs and helpful commands.
