Tarfin operations commence

In a very fortunate turn, the Linux kernel compiling, bootloadery and installation all went off with only a few hitches, so now we are good to go with....

TARFIN

Bumm Bumm Bummmm...

That's right folks, Tarfin is a Dell Dimension 4400, a Pentium 4 operating at 1.60 gigahertz. The operating system is Gentoo Linux, development branch with the Linux 2.6.8-gentoo-r1 kernel.

The basic plan is to get PHP, MySQL and Apache 2 going, and we should be ready to roll. My associates are looking at which new types of content management/portal software we should use...

For those of you keeping score, you might recall that the much slower server was also called Tarfin. Well, for historical reasons, I am sticking with the name until I get a good fast server going. Which evidently happened this morning. YAY!
