  The reason for all the off-topic posts is probably that you cant mention
guns in usenet without attracting every total nutter online.
  Its emotional enough with a bunch of intelligent Linux users.

  My job is to help my boss install RH on the box. Think RH 5.2 would be a better bet? 

Ugh. please stop with the 500 column lines.
There are no stupid questions, as him-with-mr-hat says.
Some of us remember running Linux on a 385/25 with 8MB, but not fondly.
I forked out lots of $ for an extra 4MB to run netscape. These days, you'd
better make it al least 16MB.

hang on ... Satan is probably just acting as a mini-web server, so
it might not need that much RAM.

Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.
