    Has anybody seen the PC Pro article in the latest issue about setting up your own Linux Server at home for file sharing and broadcasting music round the house, they made it sound so easy :)

    Sorry trip, PC Pro is a magazine here in the UK, their site has some of the articles but not that one. I suspect it may turn up on there in due course, perhaps when the next issue is out or due out. The article doesn't go into great detail, just floats ideas for using Red Hat 9.0 in the home for various purposes. It wet my appetite to have a play but I'm afraid it has to join the very long queue of jobs to do :)

    Bummer. I thought it might be along the lines of this book: http://www.nerdbooks.com/item.php?id=0130090263 When I "grow up", I want to turn one of my old IBM Pentium 166 machines into a linux router/firewall. Without the GUI, it should just scream along on a legacy machine.

    The article wasn't anything like as detailed as that book looks, I'm sure I've mentioned it before but I'm in Luuuurve with a Linux Firewall/Router called Smoothwall and yes it'll sscream along on a P166. Just boot off a CD and 20 - 30 mins later it's protecting your network. I guess thats why I know jack about Linux, just wandering along with the wizards instead of getting my hands dirty :scrambles
