Pretty quiet list for a while. Anyone doing anything interesting? I'm in between projects right now, and concentrating on Windows 2k stuff. But I intend to start working on creating Debian boot floppies for IBM 6015/7020 machines with 601 processors. I have been working on the machine for a while, and I can get various kernels to boot, get the network running and install some tools, but I can't get enough of a system installed on the machine to survive a reboot (or successfully compile a kernel). I also picked up Sybex's Linux+ study guide out of curiosity. I don't know if I'll actually take the exam or not, but the book is a decent refresher for a beginner to intermediate user. Since it comes with a practice exam CD, it makes an excellent learning tool for the subjects it covers (all at a basic level - it does not look like you need guru status to pass the exam): Planning an implementation, Installation, Configuration, Administration, System Maintenance and Troubleshooting. You can take it one chapter at a time, and by the time you're done you should be getting perfect scores or high 90's on the practice tests. Once you're there, you should be a relatively competent system administrator. All in all, a pretty good investment even if you don't have any use for the CompTIA certification (I know it won't help me at work at all - we're a Windows shop, and I've only been able to sneak one BSD server into production there). It's at your favorite bookstore, or else they can order it. ISBN 0-7821-2939-0 James Cheers, James ------------------------------------ This is the Juneau-LUG mailing list.
