This article shows how you can convert a physical Windows system (XP, 2003, 2000, NT4 SP4+) into a VMware virtual machine with the free VMware Converter Starter. The resulting virtual machine can be run in the free VMware Player and VMware Server, and also in VMware Workstation and other VMware products. VMware Converter comes in handy if you want to switch to a Linux desktop, but feel the need to run your old Windows desktop from time to time. By converting your Windows desktop into a virtual machine, you can run it under VMware Server/Player, etc. on your Linux desktop. http://www.howtoforge.com/vmware_converter_windows_linux
This tutorial will show you how to set up a serial console on a Linux system, and connect to it via a null modem cable. This is quite useful if your Linux server is in a headless configuration (no keyboard or monitor), as it allows you to easily get a console on the system if there are any problems with it (especially network problems, when SSH is not available). In the end, the GRUB menu will appear over the serial link, as will the bootup messages (output when booting the system). I am using Debian Etch on the server and Ubuntu Edgy on my client, although this should work on any Linux distribution. http://www.howtoforge.com/setting_up_a_serial_console
This tutorial describes how to set up an audio streaming server with Icecast2. In order that Icecast2 can stream audio to listeners we install Ices2. Ices2 is a program that sends audio data to an Icecast2 server to broadcast to clients. Ices2 can either read audio data from disk (Ogg Vorbis files), or sample live audio from a sound card and encode it on the fly. In this article we will let Ices2 read .ogg files from the local hard disk. http://www.howtoforge.com/linux_webradio_with_icecast2_ices2

Network Bonding, otherwise known as port trunking allows you to combine multiple network ports into a single group, effectively aggregating the bandwidth of multiple interfaces into a single connection. For example, you can aggregate two gigabyte ports into a two-gigabyte trunk port. Bonding is used primarily to provide network load balancing and fault tolerance. http://www.howtoforge.com/network_bonding_ubuntu_6.10
This tutorial describes how to scan emails for image spam with FuzzyOCR. FuzzyOCR is a plugin for SpamAssassin which is aimed at unsolicited bulk mail containing images as the main content carrier. Using different methods, it analyzes the content and properties of images to distinguish between normal mails (ham) and spam mails. FuzzyOCR tries to keep the system load low by scanning only mails that have not already been categorized as spam by SpamAssassin, thus avoiding unnecessary work. http://www.howtoforge.com/fight_image_spam_with_fuzzyocr_spamassassin

I really like ubuntu; been using it for about a year. Since I have access to three systems and a laptop at home, printing has not been a major concern - (XP, sorry). Anyway, I attempted to add my two major printers to a small ubuntu box with the idea of eventually converting most of my work to U. I have close to 1,000 good photos from Italy and a few stateside locations. It was a good idea until I attempted to install a Canon Pixma IP6000D and Canon I9900. The printer list does not even mention these printers. Went out on the web and got more bad news from TURBO PRINT, a CANON driver site I don't recall, and one referencing GUTENBERG. I think. Drivers almost work - results do not resemble photoshop - XP prints at all. I spent 8 years as an email administrator (RedHat 9 and Fedora ) and about 15 before that as a training administrator dealing with WIN95/98/2000 and - Uggghh - MSDOS. Don't really care if I ever see another command line again - unlesss I am troubleshooting my own stuff.
