I would like to know as well. If there is a security problem with the
Slackware distribution, I would like to know. Is the RedHat

I am currently running 2.0.24 on a single CPU gateway box running IP
masquerading (gateway to my ISP), another SMP box running SAMBA (printer
sharing) for two Win95 clients.
