OK. I managed to get Hiawatha compiled, installed, configured and
running! It even works, though I've not yet finished reading up on all
it's features etc, so it'll be a while before I let it loose on the
public, but so far, it appears to work well.
I also managed to duplicate it all on the V8.1 machine I have to play
with at work, so I can fiddle during a lunch break, also having SSH
access to the V8.0 box here at home too now, from my desk at work. ;-)
I'm liking F'BSD more and more, and with multiple SSH "terminals" open on
another PC, it's getting easier to understand. Guess in time I'll look
to running X on the thing, and do it that way, but for now, headless via
SSH over the LAN works just fine.
I've got a lot of other stuff to do now, so the BSD box's will have to
look after themselves for a little while, till I catch up on things.
I'm sure I'll be back when something else puzzles me.
Many thanks again people.
