It took all stinkin’ day. Brought me bear the point of tears. But I got version 6.01 of e-smith server (now SME Server) installed and running. Normally this would take less than 2 hours but I was having hardware issues. What a pain!
It set me unbelieveablly behind in my work but conceptually this greatly speed up my development efforts.
Point of interest. The linux server which I do all my php development (the one with the harddrive that is finally dying) only has 40MB ram, a 1.6gb harddrive and is lightning fast! The new server, a 10gb harddrive and 64MB ram. I don’t know the processor on either offhand but they are vintage.
