  Thank you!  Such a wonderful compliment ;))  I know what it is not to
  know where to turn when you are stuck and looking for help ; I just
  want to return the favor in the spirit of open-source/net brotherhood
  ( and of course sisterhood, or Robin Hood   Ooops! wrong hood ;)

  I'm afraid I don't remember exactly what the question was, if you
  wouldn't mind refreshing my memory.

  Certainly!  Anything! ;)

  256MB RAM.

  Oh wow... I hope you don't wake up with any tire marks from the landing
  gear ;)  Better keep a shotgun near so the "birds" land farther down
  the runway ;)

  There's nothing wrong with legacy hardware, lots of people are making
  use of them ; turning once gigantic doorstops into servers, routers,
  and fileservers.

  Until very recently, my router had only one HD, a 1.2GB disk given
  to me by a friend.  It died, and I was forced to make some changes
  running of a bootable cdrom with my firewall/router stuff on it.

  I offer my condolences.

  Wow.  Good collection ;)  Interested in clustering?

  I'm glad to be listening... only, if you would re-post your question,
  I would be more than happy to help you in any way possible ;)

  Good luck!
