They should figure out myself purchasing their plastic-boxes... I like to
build my own 'stations' on 19" steel rackmount modules, into cubic steel
cabinets, with metal removable racks, plus a modified air cooling system,
based on the Alpha micro-forged heatsinks... Adding-on some Corsair memory
modules and an ICP Vortex SCSI controller, the beast is done...
I have just received a funny fake message from my provider, with the add-on
of an executable for my WIN, dressed like a .zip. Maybe somebody doesn't
like my taste for free-thinking...
VMWare should work on /usr/compat/linux, it is told in 'The Complete
Reference FreeBSD' by Roderick W. Smith, 'Mc Graw Hill Osborne' editions.
