If it has to do with Linux it will be here, or near here


Since I am up late I will hammer this out while it is fresh in my mind. I am using my netbook more and more. As noted in the previous post “Gentoo Server Config -1” I use NFS on my home server. Well I would like access to the NFS Read more…
