#Have you tried calling tech support? I tried to instal SuSE on a B&W

them... just to get into phone hell... If you follow the apple OSX and
ASIP #server lists, there are quite a few people that have gone over to
linux. No one can recommend SuSE any #more. Shoot, thats what I tried
to do. Finally just bought OSXS 10.2. Yea, I have a few linux books.

three of them don't even mention it.
#I think I did get it to install once. Couldn't find any GUI with
netatalk. Even did a "full install". I found simba #config. but nothing
for any kind of GUI for a apple file server.
#Yellowdog got a large contract to put Linux on a bunch of xservers for
