I know this is not strictly Linux related but I could use some help. I have a
student who is working on a project for the AS ICT in Access (sorry to swear).
He has a working log on system using a query but would like to make a .txt
file of all the people that log on and have it update (like a security log).
I assume this involves some VB which I am not au fait with at all.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
BTW, the specifications, at least for AQA I'm not sure about other boards,
though not explicit do force students down the MS route. I am in the process
of challenging this as I would like to use MySQL as I get more familiar with
First time I have used this linux school connection
so if u r able to reply, be gentle please simple
instructions for a simpleton I have very little
Linux xp but know a friend who at moment does not know
the answer to the de following:-
We have recently set up LTSP at my school one Linux
computer that has three thin clients working from it
(which is connected to the school network which has
a Linux server that has performed wonderfully for the
past 4 years).
It has been okay so far, but he thin clients wont log
onto the computer if it has been not used for a while
and then if I use the computer I am then able to log
on from the thin clients can anyone help?
I presume the hard drive has gone bye byes does
Linux do that? if so how do I stop it and would it
do any harm to the computer to leave it on all the
time without a switch off hard drive function? Or r
there any really clever folk who know how to start the
computer up from the thin clients if my assumption is
Thanks in advance

There are lots of forums on a variety of different subjects to do with

I am just testing it all out and would appreciate you using it.
A huge thanks to all who responded.
Hmm. I've looked at dabs.com for a printer within
budget. Unless anyone screams 'nooooo', I'll go ahead
and order a Brother HL-1450 tomorrow. It's got 8mb of
RAM, supports PCL6 (whatever that is) and Adobe
PostScript 2 (apparently this is good). It's �229
I appreciate the advice on the makes (Brother and HP
seemed to come up a lot).
As always, much obliged.

HP1200N is the only one near the budget - should be able to acquire one for
less than £300. Most recent kernels should support printing to them no

We use HP4050s, but they are rather more than the budget the
original poster came up with.

I've set up an LTSP server in a local school. I don't
know much about Linux printing. Could someone
recommend a cheap (�250ish) mono laser printer that is
easy to set up (RedHat 7.2 on that box). Is there one
make that someone has had good/bad experience with?
Thanks in advance.

Can someone suggest some good collaboration software that will run under Linux, something similar to Lotus Notes or MS Exchange. What are the chances that there might be a WIN32 front end that I can use for Windows clients. I would consider something web based.

Hi there- and happy new year!
By the sounds of it, you have a perfectly *capable* server, if not a need
for extra storage and maybe some RAM? At this time, you could opt for a new
server for file/print services running, say, SuSE or Red Hat, but there will
be a learning curve for your techies. You could (shock) on the other hand
stick with what you've got and just add a second NT server with similar RAID
configuration and delegate it storage or some such task. The costs of this
option are known widely; in fact, even with the learning curve, I'd opt for
the former (Linux).
Perhaps it would be worth talking with the firm Frank recommended. Or maybe
you could consider building a server yourself (great for the techies too).
Make the server your file/print server, let it house the /home directories
and run SAMBA on it as either a PDC (current versions only) or just
file/print authenticating through the NT PDC.
Either way, you really need some space there :-) Your CD Server would be
worth *fixing* with the latest software, and that may extend the warranty or
support--always worth it in the long run. Since you are a *language* school,
you also no doubt run highly proprietary software which runs only on
Windows, so sticking with the main PDC would be a good idea for now.
Like Frank has already said, there are many good books and support lists
that will help with the setting up of a Linux server in any configuration
imaginable. Use those sources and make an informed decision. When all is put
on the scales, Linux I am sure will seem very attractive as opposed to the
alternatives. However, I would stick with one of the more *known* brand
names as given above, since they offer some nice configuration tools and
excellent support services themselves.
HTH a little!
We are a school with Language College status and desperately need to
upgrade/supplement our existing server.
We run an NT4 raid server, with only 1GB of free space (from 37.5GB
available), CD Server (Avantis-not set up properly, due to supply of 'faulty
s/w', Avantis only want £200 for s/w that works), with a mix of win95/98
workstations, (approx 130).
Which ever solution we opt for, it will have to be reliable and be
maintained by 2 technicians whose enthusiasm far exceeds their knowledge (at
the moment, but they are learning, quickly).

What science software is popular with schools, either for use with students
or technical staff.
I have rasmol for both windows and Linux, I also have a titration program
(in french) and a program to calcuate molecular weight from a given formula.
If some could also please point me in the direction of sites for science
technicians I would also be grateful, something on laboratory procedures,
relating to schools.
