Seems I've started a bit of a battle on the list about linux v doze ..
etc etc .. Sorry.
TBH I use a doze desktop, (had so much trouble trying to get my dell
laptop screen configured in more than 640x480 in FC2 that I gave up, as
I didnt have the time to mess with it, and went back to doze), also 2
linux servers - one deadrat, and one debian.
Thank you to all who replied with suggestions. I'm sure I'll be back for
help when I hit some problems.
