Friday has finally shown it's beautifull
face and announced the beginning of the weekend, time
enough for me to do some serious work on trying to finish
this doc, or at least get it to version 0.1.
ISDN link to Bangalore keeps going down, am convinced
an error at their end but no way to decisively conclude as
it may be a problem on the transatlantic link side of
Finalised the settings for invisible proxying with
scanning and it runs lovely, no longer need to specify any
proxies just point it at the default gateway and hey
More DevFS fun, decided to implement it on the server
before migrating it to ReiserFS, as usual it did not go
according to plan, recompiled the kernel, migrated boot
onto a seperate drive, reran lilo and recieved a lovely
message about boot signatures.
After checking that I hadn't gone above the 4Gb limit,
then restoring the mbr, then rechecking the lilo.conf,
then recompiling lilo 20 times I found it, thye most
stupid of things, the most irratatingly simple, the
partition I had migrated boot onto used to be the NT boot
partition and I hadn't removed the entry from lilo, DOH!.
