Sorry I'm a little late in replying to the initial email in this thread.
I'm very much a newby who has been trying to get a Linux setup going that
would enable both myself & my wife to painlessly change over from Windows.

wireless, and the office, the Linux test desktop & the NAS running on Cat
5. Except for the Linux test boxes, each of these computers can back up to
To get all these running successfully on Linux has been a pain, to put it

here & there that might help, but although I've enjoyed the sessions & the

them along to a meeting to work on them there.

with bells on!
