It looks like we may be the only two who are interesting
on this book.

SOHO (Small Business/Homw Office) has specific requirements
not much different from an Internet servers.  I am thinking
that the following areas should be covered:

- Telecommunication: ADSL/Cable/ISDN/T1
- Network: internal LAN
- Firewall: NAT/DMZ
- Security: VPN
- Journaled FS: ext3
- Mail services: including virus scanning
- File services: windows/mac/novell
- Proxy/web content filtering: squid/squidguard
- Print services
- DHCP services
- DNS services
- Maybe web services

However, the SOHO can't afford a full-time sys admin.  So the
emphasis should be in easy to setup/configure/maintenance.
Software with a web-interface would be the best since the web
browsing interface is familiar to most people. Similarly, ext3
should be recommended so an operator's error does not require
an e2fscking.
