AmatukaCareful not to get じょうで mixed up with うえで because they look exactly the same with kanji. 
AmatukaSecond example has an implied なんですか at the end of the sentence. 
AmatukaOops. On second thoughts kill that -> ueha 'see also' 
Amatuka(Too darn many 上's to get confused) 
SnakeI finally saw joude when i was installing debian on my laptop ^_^ it was something like
Snake*の上で even  
your nameI often hear people at work use joude as in "PC jyou" on the PC... 
MikiAs for 'このベースシステムのじょうで、ネットワークホストインストールすべきです。' is not natural for me. このベースシステムじょう(上)で would be better. I think when 上 is followed by noun, 上 would be read as 'じょう'. 
bamboo4You means when 上 is "precceded" by noun. 
I think there is a need for の after the 名詞, before the 上で(うえで), 名詞+の上で
If it is verb 動詞 , then it is 動詞(た形)+
Sometimes, you can omit the で : 上(で) 
PC 上 means " about/for/relating about the PC" same as ex#392 "upon/relating about the using of email"
Like ex#392, here 上で means " 〜に関連して ", whereas the remaining 3 examples mean ”〜してから”
bamboo4A minor point, but in #5889, "the necessary events" should be "the necessary particulars".
