Just joined the list. After six and a half years borged by WinNT, I'm
trying again to transition to Linux. Just wondering how tolerant
NBLUG is with newbies... I have lots of questions.
My first intro to Unix was... well, Intro to Unix 1 & 2 with Sean
Kirpatrick at the JC ('96). I opened my Sonic account via telnet from
Nermal, I think it was either 6 or 9 bucks a month back then. And
wasn't it Slackware? Anyway, I haven't done much with Linux since
then, but recently picked up copies of SuSE (for my laptop) and
Mandrake (dual-booting on one Win2k PC, and testing server stuff on
another old clunker).
My home LAN is connected to the Internet via NT4 running WinroutePro
for NAT and firewall. I have another NT4 (PDC) box running File and
Print Services. I'd like to convert the NAT box to Linux, but have to
keep the other box running NT until I finish my MCSE upgrade later this
year (blech! I know, I have almost ZERO motivation to do that now).
That's enough blathering for now, see y'all tonight!
