   Just to ensure we're all on the same page here, I have five machines
behind a firewall with trusted users...my daughters, Mom, and me.  At th
school this won't be the case: hackers come from schools...it could be
just as vulnerable from the inside, as out.  :(

    One Question: I'm pretty seasoned in Linux, but I don't hack the
kernel...I've read the RHCE 'training manual' and aced it. How'd you
managed to get your RHCE? Aren't they something like $2K, and take a few
days to take?  What's the recent story on the certification?  I'd really
like to get one, too...
