Yes, page 93 :D

Not sure, he isn't really writing about Karoshi@Home in its own sense really as using it as a tool to help those who need a simple to design home network.

Phil Thane is a member of my LUG, great bloke. He contributes a lot to it. Which reminds me, I must finish redoing the LUG homepage. I must also sleep sometime this year :)

Pity... I was hoping for something more on the lines of an LXF tutorial; a bit more than a review, but not as much as a HowTo.

Does it absolutely have to be run on Mandriva ? Would it, for instance, run on Fedora Core 2 ?

At the moment we are re-writing karoshi to work with an distro, because karoshi@home is a slither off of this that to will change. Though I will say we have had it running on Fedora, Suse, as well as mandriva, though you would still have to know a bit about the back end before using it, as some of the gui wouldn't work....we are working on this to change as we soon realised it needed a wider appeal......

A-Wing, Phil is great, we worked so hard as karoshi@home was his brain-child, and we just provided the man power.

I don't know much about karoshi@home, what features / advantages does this have over a system such as webmin based system or clarkconnect?

Well its not really an administration package (which is what karoshi is...) its more of a click click my servers setup, go to windows client, join domain connected to my shares. Bring a laptop home, oh, DHCP has connected me, got my shares....that kind of thing, also with add/delete users add for good measure....

I see, make sense really. Not really useful for me, but I can think of people who could use it. Well done. The project I am working on (webalizer re-write) is only about 75% done (done as in beta version) and kinda stalled until I can finish the backlog of other home work I have got on done (4 web site designs and 600 perl scripts, oh joy!).

mambo-phpshop (http://www.mambo-phpshop.net/) with xplike template + my code mods as posted on the mambo-phpshop forum. Very good system, I find it much easier than Zen Cart or OsCommerce

Thanks, we are looking at mambo to replace the phpnuke website in karoshi, as we think phpnuke is slightly to hard for school folk.

I'm converting most of my sites to mambo now. Done 3 of them so far (2 of which are mambo-phpshop), doing NWLUG next week (or this weekend if I have time). Love the easy to use modular design of it. Nice and easy to patch as well. Forgot to mention the random quotes and random image modules have been hacked and improved by me as well but I haven't released the code for them yet as I want to make them more configurable first (if I ever find time).

Quick question, when you say submit a bit of news or an item do you have to use html? Thats one of the reasons to be rid of phpnuke, its ok for me to write a entry with all the html tags, but not for a teacher...

lixuxgirlie, really when you've caught your breath have a look at, http://www.mamboserver.com and go through the demonstation, very impressive and the embedded editors automatically format the items into html code. The administration is pretty straightforward too. Its all very elegant, highly reccomended.

linuxgirlie: You might want to have a look at www.websitebaker.org for a nice easy CMS for the school (I use it for ours) - not as big as Mambo but it has a very simple "page-based" feel to it and easy to update (no HTML needed).
