Which is exactly what we're looking for as well. Too bad Holland is a
bit far.

Indeed. Due to positive press reviews, our number of customers has
increased significantly over the last 6 month or so.

I've been installing linux-based intranet servers for three years
now. Switching to debian about a year and a half ago definitively made
my life a lot easier. Production time for a fully operational intranet
isdn firewall router with apache, mysql, samba, etc... currently
stands at about 3 hours. But I'm hoping to bring it down to one hour
or even less eventually. I expect that the main bottlenecks will
become IO speeds (formatting with block-checks and installing from
a CD+HDD-mirror).
