I'm new to NetBSD and this mailing list. I'm hoping you guys can
offer some advice.
I'd like to choose a machine to run NetBSD/mac68k to accomplish the following:
1. Serve web pages and a Perl CGI chess script. The pages are
spartan and the chess application is not real time. I won't have
more than 10 users accessing the site a few times per day. I have
cable internet access.
2. Run a mail server which will only be emailing my chess users when
their opponent has made a move.
3. Share my cable internet access with my iMac running Mac OS 9.2 and
one or more other machines.
Is this possible on a IIci? Or would a Centris or Quadra 650 be more
What about serving MP3 files (not playing them of course) to my iMac
and other machines? I'd like to add a headless and diskless mp3
jukebox (maybe a NetBSD/i386 machine) to my network in the future.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions. I'm really looking forward to
trying out NetBSD. In all honesty I've never touched a Unix style
command line before so I'm sure I'm in for a lot of, um, fun!?
Have you played Atari today?
