This is a re-send of an e-mail sent to webmaster at ilug.ie on 09/07,
hopefully someone will see it this time.
As a member of the Dublin Food-Co-op http://www.clubi.ie/dfc/ I'm
involved in their IT committee. Since they're doing a review of their IT
systems at the moment ( a couple of 486's, one pentium 150, no network,
one printer, one modem used solely by the pentium, all running Windows
95/98 ) I'm hoping to lead them by the hand into the open-source world
which I think fits the ethos of the co-op a bit better that the current
Here's the question, would the ILUG like to take us on as a project ??
My idea is that, with a few network cards, the 486 on linux could work
as a router for internet traffic and run SAMBA ( I believe this would
allow all PC's then to share the printer ). All PC's could then be used
for internet access, as opposed to the primacy of the pentium right now.
What do you think ? and more importantly Can/Will you help ?
