Well, since you've asked twice now <g> I'll burden you with why
I've wound up the way I have...
1. I have two systems: a relatively new 400Mhz P2 and an old
tired but still serviceable 486/133Mhz system (shows you how
often I get to upgrade!).
2. I also have a cable modem connection. I have never seen a
100bt connection for an isa machine. I'm not even sure that if
one exists that the 486 could keep up. This has resulted in the
400 P2 becoming the gateway. The 400P2 has a 100bt card in it
and an isa 10bt connection to the 486. Yes, the cable modem
uses the 100bt as I downloaded StarOffice at an average speed of
250kbps using Netscape running under linux.
3. My kids (and I'll admit..me!) do play games. After I
installed linux on the 400 P2 I was pestered to death to reboot
win98 so they could play Myth, Starcraft, Independence War....
Everytime I brought up win98 I'd have to change all my settings
on the linux 486 to use the proxy instead of ipmasq and then
change them back later.
4. My wife is essentially computer illiterate. She has finally
become somewhat comfortable with the win office suite but will
not use SO or WP (I have the latest versions). The kids also
use the win office suite for homework. Since they're always in a
last minute rush to finish they have no interest in learning
5. The version of the wingate proxy software that I have has
performed flawlessly...and no, it will not expire at the end of
There's probably more reasons but I'm sure you get the drift. I
have retired the 486 as a nice little linux system for me. I
use it for a Hylafax server (both linux and win98), mail, news,
irc, and a backup system for both boxes using ARKEIA (which
backs up both linux and win9x).
I've essentially admitted defeat on using the 400 P2 as a linux
system too. Perhaps one day but not now. It got so bad that if
I left the room for a beer it would be magically running win98
when I came back...and everyone swore that it was always running
I have been using smtp with Netscape and xfmail for mail on the
486. Both work just fine through the wingate proxy. However, I
haven't found a way to run sendmail at all. There doesn't seem
to be a way that I can find to configure it properly. I even
bought the O'Reilly sendmail book but it's too much for me.
Setting up sendmail is just an intellectual exercise. I just
thought I'd have some fun and learn a little more about how to
use it. I just didn't think it was going to have so much fun!!!
