Thaaanks! Ah... this brings me to one more question. I love 6.3 but
should I wait to install 7.0? I mean I'd hate having to update a few
months after the server is up and running. Especially, that any
updates will be remotely handled (fortunately the ISP promises to help
if need be - they are excellent and very responsive in this respect).
