I need an honest answer guys...
---My friend has a unused copy (still in shrink-wrap) of Red Hat
Linux 5.2.. The Extra! edition w/ power tools and stuff. The Red Hat box
includes everything I'm looking for, http, ftp, XWindows, and more... But
I'm not sure about NAT to share my IP address (soon to be DSL connection!).
---Or am I better off, as a beginner to the Unix-type systems, with
NetBSD? What folders on the FTP site exactly would I need for a DEC Multia
166? I'll have to use a 3Com PCMCIA as the second NIC card for the IP
---Or should I stick with what I know, which is an "evaluation" copy
of WinNT4? Then use SyGate or Game Router for the DSL connection?
