never really used the install cd..   always seemed to much trouble for
me since I'm not exactly new to linux, stuck on dial up, and already
had both knoppix and dsl linux.  downloading large files isn't worth
it most of the time for me.  when I get time to download it I'll check
that cd out.  sounds interesting.

off topic just a bit I was wondering what everyone thought about a
opensource nas operating system bassed on m0n0bsd.   I have never been
able to find a good free one that was easy to setup.

I'll start a new thread if needed..   just wanted thoughts on it

Best regards,
 Brandon                            mailto:bstone108 at comcast dot net
