        Great idea. My customization of Mulinux is done in the server
basis. By the way, I am about to add novell printer server support, but
don't want to test it here as most of the network runs under novell and
I don't want to get kicked out off here as of yet :) Whenver there is
any progress in that front, I'll let you know (novell printer server
support is easy. File sharing is hairier, though)

        That is probably true, but having a pragmatic approach might be
useful here. In the case of mulinux/server I see it as "any program that
can be installed by one person so that many can benefit from it
remotely". Now that I think of it, an MP3 streamer is just what we need
in this lab :) Anyway, that's just how I see it, but as you rightly say,
this can be a tougher question. :)

        Romantic? X-))

        One of my teachers used to say that it's all Science, and hence,
it's all Art. There!
