Thanks Philippe (and Eamonn). More things to tweak (or not tweak) is a
good start. I've been doing this all on my own LAN just fine, so I
think my "clients" are fine - we'll just have to check out his server
when I talk to him again. This guy is a Mac user, so he knows the
"Terminal" exists, but I pretty much have to walk him through
everything. I guess we were all there once though. :o)

Thanks! I liked the general design of but I didn't see any
artwork there per se. If you know where I can get some data or
pictures to use when constructing your map, I'd be happy to play with
the idea. :o)
