You are welcome.

A note regarding Slackware vs Ubuntu. Slackware is maintained by
hobbyists (not a bad thing), while Ubuntu is an enterprise-level
distribution (that is very reliable among other things).



For those interested, another enterprise-level, mission critical Linux
distribution, is Scientific Linux, which is the Red Hat Enterprise
Linux source code, recompiled (and thoroughly retested for use in
Fermi and CERN).

Keep in mind that Red Hat thoroughly tests the Red Hat Enterprise
Linux source code, which means Scientific Linux is thoroughly tested

The name Scientific doesn't mean it is for scientists, they gave it
this name because it is used at these 2 scientific organisations.

Another respin of Red Hat Enterprise Linux source code, is CentOS, but
this is maintained by hobbyists, which means they do not retest it
thoroughly, and the updates are not released as soon as possible.

So in summary, the two Enterprise-level, mission-critical Linux
distributions I recommend, are Ubuntu and Scientific Linux.
