as for the reboots... my dad just went through this when he installed it clean on a new system. there is some worm virus that installs simply by connecting a non-patched system to the internet. he installed xp, installed service pack 1 but the patch didn't get applied, obviously, until after he had been connected. norton found the virus but couldn't remove it - he grabbed the removal tool from norton's website.
Been running my Debian server for over a year now on a P2 266. It has only been rebooted 3 times in that timeframe; everytime cause I needed to physically move the machine.Originally posted by KillaLadY
