I'll hold you to that!
Yes, it is based on 2.1 (slink), and our wonderful SLUG server was built
I did the initial setup with the LBBC, and then took it into UTS. Anand then
guided me through setting up /etc/apt/sources.list and the old apt-get
update; apt-get dist-upgrade schtick.
In *no* time (Mmm... academic internet connections...) we had a trussed up
potato box ready for action.
My first Debian install. I'd do a cheesy mastercard joke, but everyone would
ask why I called the server The $6,000,000 Box. :)
