Well, I haven't done Oracle on it... I use it as a NFS server, Samba server,
and also handle Win98 logins via Samba with it.  I never got around to
setting up support for Mac file sharing... but then again since I've I've
moved I haven't gotten even one Mac setup at all.

Stable... yeah... I've only had it go down due to extended power outages,
once due to overheating (I found that the front fan was oriented to blow out
instead of in.... when the dust accumlated enough to stop the small airflow
it had (due to the fans fighting each other) it overheated).

fury% uptime
  5:40pm  up 341 day(s), 20:29,  2 users,  load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.01

Geez... only 24 more days to go and it will have been up for a year !
Wow... been a while .... didn't realize it had been up that long.

Watch there be an extended power failure at day 364 !  doh ! I better
start knocking on wood...
