What do you think of the network connectivity? As everyone has probably
realized, I don't know unix systems inside and out, including Linux. But
this doesn't seem like it would be too hard, since the basic components of
accessing the modem have been around a long time. The hardest part, I
would think, would be making the connection easy for a novice user--i.e.
pap or no pap, or other isp-particular settings. Of course, there's no
reason to try to get everything at once, so making it work at all would be
the first step--and to my naive brain, this doesn't seem like it would be
too bad. What am I missing?
I'm not sure. My roommate has a 4X CD burner, and at $1 and 20
minutes per CD I might try experiment sometime. Working on boot
floppies was the whole reason I bought an extra computer. We'll see.
I hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes here. Let me know if I'm
looking at things that are already planned. But I think that my ideas
are safely wacky enough that they won't disrupt anything :-)
