The good news is that it's working. :) There must be some incompatibility with 6.2-RELEASE as on a whim, I tried 5.5, and it worked first time. So you guys are owed a beer, if you get to Paris! Our setup looks like this ...

We had some problems whilst configuring the kernel, but after going back to GENERIC and changing only the name ('RASHI'), and the 'cpu' lines, and adding QUOTA, everything worked.

I've got a working install of sendmail on the machine now, and postgreSQL and apache are also reporting for duty.
Now we just need forums and webmail. The latter will be http://www.phpbb.com/ but for webmail, we're having difficulty finding a free solution. ismail won't install from the ports, and other than that, everything I've found looks to be in the region of 250 $US. As I believe I've mentioned, the organisation is a school, and that sort of money just isn't in the kitty. So my options are to write it in perl myself... oh G-d, we want it to be working before Passover 2010! Or we find an open source version.
So once again, I throw myself at your feet....
