Welcome to David's Linux page

As I am no longer a Sys Admin this page is fairly out of date.
My main computer and my netbook are now running ubuntu.

I have decided to create this page as I have set up a few linux systems and have over time found quite a few links for various sources. My first install was from slackware, and is still my prefered distribution.

I have also included a link to my page on setting up an ADSL connection with Linux and NetSpace.
