Thanks for that info. Well, I don't have any intention of using Linux 
as anything more than a testbed, and to run some extra servers... for 
testing the server setups, and to do some Linux tweaking for 
Revolution, I'd want to use VirtualPC on my Powerbook 17. To actually 
run the servers, yes, I'll set up Linux on an actual Intel box. I have 
a few around that don't do much.  ;-)
