Hi there ,

    I use two G4 here using YDL 1.1 it works fine, but I had some problems
to make it work , but then itīs ok ... I have apache running mod_php3,
mod_ssl and shtml , an sendmail server, pop server , ftp server , WAP server
and even an mysql server, Iīve tried an Oracle version but there isnīt one,
all alike a RedHat server, the only drawback Iīve found is that any software
you want, you will need the source for compile into your machine ...
    To make it boot, I use BootX version 1.2b3 that can be found at Benīs
Page and the trouble part is the kernel ,
the ONLY one that work was Benīs 2.2.15pre3 anyone else didnīt worked ...
any other doubts , if you do not care about my pour english , please ask ...
