root forever!
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
I have followed this thru rc's. Very happy for this. I personally want to say Thanks!

P.S. Every though its announced here, today, the download site shows 12/2/10. Is this the correct version?

Tahnks again.

Adding SAMBA server to FATDOG
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 FATDOG-SAMBA.
2. One of the console logs shows accomplishments
3. Simple Setup Instructions helps anyone.

With this, 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 (except AD) 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!!!
