            Lighty is awesome.    I have it running in a chrooted environment, which only takes a short while to set up.   I've also switched over all my house machines to using NFS instead of SMB (had to use Linux Services for Windows).. Now, while my friends have huge electric bills cos of their bloated M$ Entertainment servers, I can serve videos and music, web pages (and I even have a MUSH running on there), and I use less than 7 watts of power.     God Bless the slug, and all who sail in her. ;-)
