RE: Good Red Hat install

Thank you to all of you who took the time to reply. A lot of people seem
to think that Slackware would be a good choice, so I am going to go with
that. I just want a good network scanner (for my LAN at work - I am the
net admin in case you are wondering) without all the hassle of waiting
for the GUI to boot and etc. I have lots of tools for Windows, but I
have always found more support for this kind of thing under Linux.

I will let you guys know how it goes - but it may be awhile. Thanks.

        Matt

Subject: Good Red Hat install


Hey all,

    I am trying to create a somewhat 'standard' install that I can use

for Red Hat. The main purpose for this box would to do scans (i.e. 
nmap) and maybe packet generation to test our firewall. Now I don't 
have a lot of Linux experience, but I want to install the minimal 
possible. The test machine that I am using is an old p 233Mhz - so in 
other words the first thing gone is the gui. Can anyone point me to 
some HOWTO or something like that? Thanks

Matt
