I won't tell anyone, honest! :-)

Thanks, I wasn't sure of that before. I did the installation while far too
tired, and didn't take any notes as it was far too easy and couldn't
possibly go wrong!

Yes loads thanks, you have prompted my memory - The modem details must be
in vwdial. I'll check it out tonight.
I can make LINUX fall over! :-(
I have installed SendMail and set it up from YaST however, somewhere during
the installation/setup I was asked for my modem which I supplied as TTY1
rather than TTS01.
So SendMail now tries to get mail from TTY1 ! Which after several tries
logs you out and won't let you log in again (never gets to the password,
just keeps prompting login) and workstations are unable to log in.
I have tried un-installing/re-installing SendMail in the hope of correcting
the Modem Entry, but it doesn't ask me for the device any more. I have
searched through the config files but can't find where the association is
SendMail is uninstalled at present - any ideas please?
>The `real' configuration file for SendMail is
I have deleted this file manually before uninstalling SendMail &
re0installing it! - no joy.
SendMail no longer asks me for installation details. :-(

"Me too" - I manage a secondary DNS server, so could
give some help with configuring that set-up if required.
I was thinking the other day, that it would be really useful if
there was a place where we could publish tips or reports
or success stories and the like, so that people looking at
doing similar things could go there for a reference ...
I could create an area off my Linux Users group website
if people would be interested ... ?

Under SuSE Apache runs out of the box - all you have to do is enable it
using yast (or directly).
I assume that you want to modify the standard configuration. To keep
things easy keep all three conf files and only modify those you have to.
What do you need to change from the standard config?
I don't know if I am being too simplistic here but have you restarted
httpd after modifying the conf files (eg. kill -HUP <pid> )?

I'm trying to get hold of SuSE 6.4 for my school, including SO5.1 and WP8
at 15pounds but I'm getting no reply from the schools email address. Does someone know a quicker route! Perhaps a telephone number?
