Yes, you can install Git on your Linux server, and by default it will not 
have any sort of interaction with GitHub.

There are lots of ways to establish a Git 'server' on your Linux machine 
that your Windows machine can connect to (provided they can see each other 
on the network). I'll highlight two. 

The most primitive and raw mechanism is git daemon, which is part of Git. 
To learn about it, you can visit the git daemon manual page:


But I had more success following this tutorial:


On the other end of the spectrum, a more full-blown GitHub-like solution is 
to use GitLab.


I installed this on my 32-bit Linux box with a bit of manual effort, though 
if I had a 64-bit machine I could have used an "all-in-one" installation. 
GitLab provides not just Git hosting, but also user-management, SSH key 
management, and a Wiki. Be warned though: it's got a lot of software under 
its hood (Ruby, MySQL/postgres, Redis).

After installing either of these, then you'll have to set up the connection 
to your Git server via git remote or git clone on your Windows machine. 
 You're at the start of a lot of learning, so good luck!
