spawn of debian: choosing a live-boot CD distro
ultimately what we're after is a debian-based install that does
server functions (email, web, database) that has GOOD DETECTION
ROUTINES at install, such as
any opinions on using these to detect hardware, install, and
serve, serve, serve?
we have direct experience with knoppix and morphix -- both have
good hardware detection, but insist on installing all kinds of
trying to get a woody (or sarge, for that matter) up and running
on our raid server was a morass wed on't want to try again soon.
morphix detected everything, we installed, and then set runlevel
2 to NOT launch any X apps.
isn't there a cleaner way without having to be a brilliant
I use Debian/GNU Linux version 3.0;

DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #46 from Will Trillich <email@example.com>
Troubled by MAC-FORMAT TEXT FILES? There are many ways
to translate CR to LF. VIM can help, with these steps:
and then save/write the file (":opt" for more info).
In perl, this'll do the trick:
perl -pi.mac -l12 -015 -e ';' filename*pattern.txt
(that's a <hyphen-el-one-two> and <hyphen-zero-one-five>, by
the way -- see "perldoc perlrun" for more info.)
