I'm please to announce the birth of my first server. It's a simple AMD64 mini-itx board with a 16gb compact flash HDD. I plan to add 2 500gb HDD in a raid1 array. Last night I got the wireless connection to function via a railink rt3062 pci card. Loaded webmin and the adventure begins.
Many thanks to the postings of Chili555 and an excellent blog by woodel, (elwood).
