Just FYI....since I noticed John Ballie's name on this message (and he
attended the Northeast Linux Symposium in Maine two weeks ago)....the NELS
site is a Moodle site and it happens to be hosted on an SME server...I
love SME...I have a whole bunch of them for various purposes ranging from
Firewall/gateway/router/proxy/Dansguardian.....to simple NFS install
server housing all my images for deployment over the network.  The
installation of Moodle is very simple.  Simply untar it in the html or www
directory....create a database for it....I use  "mysql_setpermissions" and
then run the install.
