More to come as I get time.
genius build - looking forward to the bread crumbs manual for putting this together to follow along this trail...
I have installed php and mysql before when I stitched together my phpnuke site years ago.
Things have changed a bit since then I think... lol
Seriously though great ideas here... I love the color idea too its perfect for my sideXside in the garage through a glass door from my office seat.
FuzzeWuzze- I really flipped out over your idea too but was kicked in the gut at the end there - what a bummer they bailed. This seems like a great way to acheive everything we might want to do too - gawd I love opensource!
