I took the plunge today and ordered the 3.6 set together with a couple
of books ("Building Linux and OpenBSD Firewalls" and "Secure
Architectures: With OpenBSD"), and I am hoping that the CDs and at least
1 book will arrive by tomorrow morning (that's Saturday a.m. my time) so
I have the weekend to play!! :)
The plan is to see if I can get OpenBSD onto a 10 year old i386 with
dubious parts (P1 + SIMMs era), which I want to set up as a firewall,
and then to install it on a P3 box with about 8Gbs drive to be an
Intranet server for a two machine + laptop LAN. One machine will be
using Slackware, another will be Windows/Mandrake dual boot and the
laptop is Slackware at present but that might change.
Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself and share the excitement of
anticipation with a crew who would understand what that's like.
Man is the only animal that can remain on friendly terms with the
victims he intends to eat until he eats them.
-- Samuel Butler (1835-1902)
