    ubuntu How to on WIKI

    Ok this is a quick question. I am now hooked on linux playing with it all the time (much to kids annoyance filter at home squid dansguardian) I know I am new to linux but i would like to write some how to and basic setup ie the one i have ubuntu webmin with squid sarge and dansguardian module installed and set up as a proxy (makes network at home run faster) if you think it would help please vote i will also do one on raid as well and intrest and i will do it as i have got a lot of free time. The problem I found was that there are a lot of how toos but there are all over the place would be good to goto one site and find them all.

    @alonebfg: If you do not have a wiki account please contact me via PM... we have had some nasties recently so have had to lock things down to a draconian level until EduGeek v2.

    Re: ubuntu How to on WIKI

    The best thing about Ubuntu is its existing documentation, but as someone previously stated the more the merrier i guess..

    If you want a linux hobby, forget ubuntu and get into slackware

    Slackware is a real hobbiest OS, super fun!

    Or for the more hardcore; Linux From Scratch!

    I prefer my Ubuntu though

    Re: ubuntu How to on WIKI

    OK first bit is up. The main reason i am doing this is there are many resorses out there but they are all over the place none of them are in one place and i hope to add to this IE raid install, dansguardian, vmware, webmin, and more if I find any.

    if anyone want to test it please do and send me any issues you find

    Re: ubuntu How to on WIKI

    Will have a go at that. Will be particularly interested in seeing a section for DansGuardian (and presumably Squid?)

    Cheers,
