Well, my 'tests' are nothing serious: I just want to check how it works in VirtualBox on my Mac and on my Debian and follow the setup of a secure server in the older downloadable version of "Securing and Optimizing Linux" which dates back to 2003.
I could say that I do it out of laziness, but to my discharge I have to say that I am going to work during the time I am in the train commuting from home to the office and using a small netbook with a Debian ( a little Acer one with 160 GB HD).
I have also been away from the "scene" from 2006 until now, so that I want to start with known stuff again
In the case that I had been unable to find the correct version of RH I would of course have used an alternative like the "Securing Debian Guide" or build a Gentoo... which I will of course also do as I do this for plain fun (and to study for my LPI certification).
Thanks again !!!
