Yes, as much as I appreciate the efforts of RH I must say that the non
conformance of the file system is a big issue. It always bugged me that
it wasn't mainstream Linux and I was afraid of being locked into a
distro because of it (which I am). For that reason I suppose I'm at
another Linux crossroads and appreciate any input. Presently he was
hosting my site on a SUN RAQ3 server running RAQ550 software. It
apparently got cracked over the weekend (my domain is down) and he
decided this would be a good opportunity to "experiment".
Someone somewhere said Debian can be run on the RAQ3 server. On the
other hand he has a computer that he is willing to dedicate for the
project (i.e. let me host my domain on it at his facility).
Ugh, it's time for me to get my hay in the barn for this winter and then
this comes along. stretch---stretch--- stretch! But I have confidence
that the Lord will help me. If anything you folks could be praying with
me as I venture forward if you would? He has always been my help in time
of need. Wisdom, skill, aptitude, patience - you know, the regular stuff
needed for such tasks.
Thanks for the link Mr. Clough. It looks very interesting.
