1 Q: Can you add more RAM?
I compliment for not using the word "urgent", even though yours is the 1st urgent Q I have seen here at LQ. I'm sure you know that the world-wide nature of LQ makes getting an answer w/in 3 hrs a roll of the dice.
the dell poweredge t105 dual core opteron i purchased i selling for $249 (I actually got a 2.0 GHz cpu for $50 more). that seems like a heckuva deal considering i paid well over $100 more less than a month ago.
be sure to select the free sata dvd if you decide to go this route.
i just got my 3 com switch from lanstreet.com.
i'm ordering cables today and hope to get this set up in about a week or so.
i'll definitely let you know how it goes. initially, these systems will not be set up with internet access.
i hope i don't run into trouble connecting and configuring clients. we shall see...
