Looking for resources on working on a very small footprint GNU/Linux
for project we plan to start in the Affordable Solutions Lab. The idea
is to put enough stuff on 32MB Flash RAM, in a thin machine that can
run Mozilla and some apps, probably based on it using XUL.
We looked at uclinux, but that's not what we are looking for ... The
project aims to squeeze a normal network enabled kernel, with display,
VMM etc into as small a size as possible.

I wasn't able to create a username with dots (m.vinayak) on my local machine
which runs RH 9. Any idea why this has been disabled and how this can be
circumvented. This was allowed on RH 8. Do all latest distros do the same
thing or is this a RH thing?
Thanks in advance.

I am trying to share a printer connected to windows98 m/c.
I am using cups to manage printing from GNU/Linux box.
The printer is an Epson dot matrix 24 pin series printer.
on the windows98 m/c printer is shared(no authentication required)
and is visible in the Network Neighbour Hood as shared.
In cups I tried few settings but results have not been
encouraging at all.
Deviece URI : smb://220.127.116.11:80/printer_name
Driver selected was Epson 24 series.
But after these settings I get error saying "Connection failed
with error NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFULL"
The log level setting for cups is at debug2 but the error log
also shows the same statement nothing more.
Device URI : ipp://18.104.22.168/printer_name
Device URI : http://22.214.171.124/printer_name
Driver was the same as in above case.
After doing this setting I get an error saying "host 126.96.36.199 is
busy or is down will retry in 30 seconds."
and then the same line is also present in the error log.
Printing to the same printer is posible from another windows machine.
but cups is having trouble.
Thanks in Advance
Would like speakers, volunteers, suggestions for the planned workshop.
So far, Nagarjun, Dinesh and SameerDS (thats me) have agreed to speak.
The focus will be on PC Vendors, so the topics would be as follows:
Installations of various types
Desktop Applications and other productivity tools
Generaly System Adminstration
PS: Chetan Vaity, an MTech student from KReSIT who's also on this
list, has also agreed to chip in, so he can act as point-man between
us and DEP if I am not able to.

error log files in some temporary storage area.... can
