Hey guys, thanks, you're absolutely right -as if you didn't already know, hehe-
I tried a similar drill on another machine, this time a newer model (2 Ghz) with an 80Gb HD. I made three NTFS partitions of 18Gb each; then I tried and installed Linux Red Hat 9 without a problem.
I'm planning to use this machine as a test environment. I want to set up a server as a 'router', if possible. This particular machine has 3 NICs, each one connected to a different hub (actually 2 switching hubs and 1 DI524 wireless router).
I want to see if using Windows 2000 + ISA Server does the job, or if Linux is better and easier to configure and maintain.
I was able to set up a RRAS on this machine on Windows 2000 Server before, having one of the NICs as
NAT port and the other as routerV2 - it worked fine for some time until I installed MSExchange on it, then the Active Directory got corrupted. So now I need to reinstall everything again.
- do you guys know a good source of information on how to set up Linux as a router?
- any comments about ISA server?
- I also tried Windows 2003 for doing the job but because of its incorporated firewall it is really a pain to use - thumbs down to it.
