To act as a proper firewall for the network you will have it placed between your switch/router and Internet connection. Using it as a "node" is questionable at best. You should use a dedicated distro like Smoothwall . There is documentation there that can help you with the setup.
What do you want linux to take over? I like having choice. I use Mac, Windows, and Linux. I agree that Linux needs more games but a Linux based console is not the answer. Modern development tools are aiding in the creation of cross platform apps. I use Blender( An open source, free 3d...
1) I would use it to build a gaming rig for my son Alex. Alex has Asperger's sydrome and needs a new PC to get his game on. He is excited about the new games coming out but his PC is getting a little old.
If you want to do some COBOL programming after graduation, you can look into the banking, or heavy industry(steel). You can use your knowldge of COBOL to get you into some good entry level positions. You could as do some freelance COBOL work.
I programmed COBOL and RPG/II on a IBM S/36/38.
I would look at your backup in addition to some of the other recommendations.
See the logs in backup exec and look for errors there and also see if your backups are running when people are trying to use the network.
Let us know, and also give Microsoft a call.
Got off the phone with Abit earlier and they will be replacing my KR7A-133R with a NF7-S2G
They recieved the bad mobo from me on Oct 27th and they said it would take 10 business days to process. and it was 10 business to the day.
As a admin for S/36/38 (precursor to the as/400) a while back I would check with the software vendor as to what they recommend. And what a tyical customer uses, also see if you could get customer references and maybe you could talk to a real world user,
Do you have any one on staff who has...
My Abit KR7A-133r blew 3 capacitors early last week. I called Abit's RMA center left a message and the got back to me an hour later with an RMA number. I'm just hoping it doesn't take to long to get a replacement. Any one with any experience with RMA replacement from Abit what I can expect for...

And the being too old for games, that is crap. My wife's Grandpa still plays his Sega, and had a Atari 2600. I think he plays my wife's brother's Xbox. He's 73.
But with the announcement of the PS3, X-BOX 360, and the Revolution what is the point of the Phantom now? It is behind in technology as compared to the new gen consoles and will be obsolete as far as PC technology goes.
They have a booth at E3 but I haven't heard or seen any news...

I have been using Linux on and off since '97. Was introduced to it by the Network Admin at the University I used to work at. I managed all PCs, PC based Servers, and the Help Desk.
I wasn't too impressed at first. My background before then was programming and managing Mini Computers, no not...
