The benefits of Linux

I blogged some time ago about using Ubuntu Linux on the desktop.

Well my skills are progressing slowly. I have had a little project to do for a mate, these are the details.

We bought several old Dell servers at an auction from a company that went tits up.

The first challenge was to rehabilitate them. After working out how to configure the RAID and getting the HDD 's recognised I then set about installing Ubuntu Server on them.

That was the easy part.

I now have configured a true file and print server as well as set up a tranparent proxy using Squid . That was a little more difficult, but is now up and running sweetly.

I now feel almost ready to attempt Firewall installation.
