"Nice, Kirk! Another great quote on running as root: >> But we log in as root for convenience and in recognition that your personal files are just as important as system files, in fact much more important.

Thanks. A Large (64bit) Accomplishment

Adding SAMBA server to FATDOG
Username: gcmartin
"I had the luxury of working with Kirk to run FULL-SAMBA on FATDOG. He built the PET and I tested and posted how to do this. This server has excellent response times when serving files and folders out to network users. 1. His 64bit PET is at [url=][b]FATDOG-SAMBA[/b][/url]. 2. One of the [url=][b]console logs[/b][/url] shows accomplishments 3. [url=][b]Simple Setup Instructions[/b][/url] helps anyone. [u]With this[/u], The Puppy community now has a 64bit system that is as full-function as ANY Microsoft 64bit implementation. It networks with any Windows, Unix, and Linux distros. And it will do EVERYTHING ([i]except AD[/i]) the 2008 server does without spending the $1000s (In a way, ...see this as a Christmas present from Kirk. Here's a $1000+...Happy Holidays) Great work all in all.Thanks again goes to Kirk for his great effort. THANKS!!!
