Friday: Friday has finally shown it's beautifull face and announced the beginning of the weekend, time enough for me to do some serious work on trying to finish this doc, or at least get it to version 0.1.

ISDN link to Bangalore keeps going down, am convinced it's an error at their end but no way to decisively conclude as it may be a problem on the transatlantic link side of things.

Finalised the settings for invisible proxying with content scanning and it runs lovely, no longer need to specify any proxies just point it at the default gateway and hey presto.

More DevFS fun, decided to implement it on the server before migrating it to ReiserFS, as usual it did not go according to plan, recompiled the kernel, migrated boot onto a seperate drive, reran lilo and recieved a lovely message about boot signatures.

After checking that I hadn't gone above the 4Gb limit, then restoring the mbr, then rechecking the lilo.conf, then recompiling lilo 20 times I found it, thye most stupid of things, the most irratatingly simple, the partition I had migrated boot onto used to be the NT boot partition and I hadn't removed the entry from lilo, DOH!.
