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
