I did them as I went -before you updated it.
I looked yesterday and they were in.
Also have some info on ntp settings - just followed ntp.org and
ntp-pool.org advice to get it talking to a server.
In the ntp.conf file I used:
It had slipped 13mins out in about 7 days and after a reboot it synced
perfectly. There was a little difficulty getting it to agree on a
sync without the first server and there may have been other tricks
which I will check and get back to you/edit.
Should have some info eventually on setting up usb for portable hard
drives, webcams, scanner and printers(hopefully).
Its a bit scrappy how I've done it so far so will need testing from
someone with a clean install.
Many thanks again for the wiki. Used your apahe setup advice since
completely clueless on how to use it. What's the wiki package?
Still want to put a webmail up - was looking at an
openwebmail/sendmail combination to serve my emails and history when
I'm out and about - it would hopefully make Outlook fairly redundant :-))
