This is my blog explaining what I have been doing on my Linux & Windows systems and random rants on a number of other subjects.

More Linux Distros
I read another review of a live Linux CD. Kanotix is the name. It appears to have all of the tools I use when helping people recover their machines after something happens in Windows. I will have to try this out on the server and see how it handles an older machine. Since a number of current distros had a problem with the servier the server is the perfect test machine. I prefer the live CD option first so I don't have to rebuild the server from scratch (again) before I put Linux permanently on the server. If it doesn't work I may just find a new home for the machine and pick up an inexpensive refurb and make a server out of the machine.
The functions I want the server for is:
Backup of data from the other home machines in the network.
Backup to CD of any critical files.
Share the printers between machines in the network.
