I have been given the job of connecting a Novell LAN to the Internet
and intend using a Linux box. The question is whether I use
Slackware or Debian?
My Unix skills are very basic so I either use Slackware and copy the
config files from another box to which I have access, or I use
something that will virually configure itself. Will Debian set it up
for the intended role?
I plan on running Mercury on the servers to give users transparent
access to mail, so I want the smarthost to deliver mail to Mercury
via MX records and to process outbound mail via smtp.
Another problem is that I have no idea of run levels or how the thing
initialises itself, so I will need help in getting it to dial on boot
and redial when necessary. Better still, point me to some info on
booting and editing rc.*
I run Debian at home but mail is broken since I installed mh,
so I lack a certain amount of confidence here!
Any help much appreciated.
