I finally got a copy of the Live CD which came from http://sharon.esrac.ele.tue.nl/pub/linux/ham/pskmail/ I couldn't get the ones on the other mirror servers to work.

This is great. I now need to run it on this PC and fix the CD drive on the another PC I have, a Dell GX-150, and run it on that CD.

I can't wait until I can get my computer connected to my RigBlaster and get on-the-air at least with Fldigi.

FLdigi seems so simple to run and I think when I spend more time on PSKMail, it will also be nice.

Thanks to Rein and all those who helped him on PSKMail and to Dave and his "helpers" on Fldigi...this is super software.

Is there room to put the OpenOffice word processor on the Live CD and an OpenSource spreadsheet?

Thanks & 73,

I'm glad that it worked for you now. I hope the previous problems were
just caused by a bad download of the iso. Yes, there is room for
openoffice, I can test to add it and see how big it gets.

I'm confident that Klint, KE5FMN, who runs mannindustries.net server will check this out and make sure that everything is Ok on his end and that it was just the download that failed.

BTW, let me take this opportunity to say that in talking to a Linux guru who is also a guru on Unix and Linux E-Mail servers (originally sendmail) that he said that it shouldn't be a problem running a small smtp/pop3 server on the same machine as PSKMail and the smtp/pop server could use a 44. domain IP address or unrouted domain address so individuals would have E-Mail service that was not connected to the Internet. There surely would have to be some routing tables set up so that E-Mail to and from the smtp/pop server went to the local machine where the PSKMail server was and also allow the PSKMail server to forward mail on to "real" Internet E-Mail accounts..but he felt that this would not be a problem.

73 & tnx,
