    Bootmanagers for the Mac

    Which Linux distribution are you using? Linux PPC comes with a gui for bootp, this shouldn\'t be an issue. It will let you switch between whichever LinuxPPC/MkLinux, and Classic OS, and the option key will let you switch between classic and X. I dont know about OpenBSD, but there has to be...

    What\'s with all the backslashes?!

    Its not you, its the script (the bbs). Everywhere there is an apostraphe, it is putting in a slash, so it is not executed. I\\\'m new to php, but its got something to do with commenting out the apostraphe. I think.

    is os x's webserver enough???

    That is apache. And I would recommend doing some searching. Everything you need to know on apache is here, don't expect everyone to spell it out for you. (Yes, I've seen your other posts.) [Edited by anothermacguy on 12-21-2000 at 12:14 PM]

    ftp user access (restrictions)???

    The typical way to do this would be to put the users that you want localized to their home directories in the chroot file (/etc/chroot). This functionailty is not there in the PB, and chroot will only work with anonymous ftp. There are a number of places to learn how to setup OSXPB for aFTP...

    No, it is possible to hide those directories. Change the mode so that it is not viewable, but still executable. You may have to play around with it, but it does work. I have them all hidden for the same reason. Unfortunately, I'm not at my computer right now, and cannot print my ~ftp...
