I now have multiple Linux boxes up and running.
Debian is what I have on my boxes; I have found it easy to install and maintain. My "big" box serves as my web/mail server for my home network. Some key applications on this box are:
My second box is a place for me to play and learn. Right now, I'm learning about Kernel building and Modules. This is also the box where I have compiled and have Xastir running. Xastir is an APRS application - some interesting stuff.
You will find some information in my weblog about the work I'm doing on these boxes and where I find information/software to make it all work.
