A slightly different take on this: Unless you're *REALLY* poor/underpaid, the time you would spend making a "safe" way for your friend to poke at a production box to learn would be a lot more expensive than a cheap-o eBay computer... Give him his own box with FreeBSD on it and let him be root -- He'll learn a heck of a lot more by screwing up things as root than any other way of learning. -- Like Music? http://l-i-e.com/artists.htm _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
