    Dell’s UltraSharp 2005FPW widescreen 20-inch LCD monitor.

    Anyone know how big the PIP box is, and the resolution that it has. Someone mentioned playing their Xbox on the PIP box as being a better alternative, and that sounds like a good idea given that its not incredibly small.

    Installing apache on mandrake

    What is your question? I know in debian we start and stop apache by typing apachectl [start | stop | status]. Check if you have a /var/www/, thats where you would put stuff. If it isn't there, check your /etc/apache/httpd.conf

    Debian Question

    gdm and xdm don't allow root login to X for security reasons. You can also get rid of gui login by removing which ever one you happen to use. If you want a rootshell in gui, just SU, or get rid of either xdm and gdm, login as root, and startx. As the previous poster said, resolution is changed...

    X200 2.4.22 softkeys don't work

    I recently decided to upgrade and change some kernel configurations. While this has helped me deal wtih some issues, it has created other ones. One of the biggest changes I made is removing apm support and adding acpi support instead. However, I notice now that none of the softkeys work. The...

    httpd logging options

    This might be a dumb question, but, I was just curious as to what apache logging options are around. The only thing that I could find was this , and it wasn't very helpful. The actual reason that I'm asking about is because I want Webalizer to work beyond access.log, since that obviously gets...

    Yup, Verizon provides two. Another quick question, How would you go about setting a static IP for a freeBSD box for an interface. In linux you use ifup ifdown and /etc/network/interfaces. Sorry, just playing with freebsd.

    FreeBSD router + webserver?

    Well, the plan was to just use this box for a FreeBSD router, and traffic shapper. However, it is a celeron 400, which is over kill for a router. Any reasons why I wouldn't run apache on it? Since this machine is on 24/7, I'm probably going to turn it into a bt downloader aswell. Should there be...

    Want to setup a linux box for file sharing!

    ^^ Samba is more flexible, imho, except with windows XP auth... I think. Anyways, make sure you build smb modules into any other linux boxes you put on.
