Well, after years and years of "meaning to install linux @ home" I finally got in the position that I essentially "had" to I needed a CVS server for a buddy of mine and I to share a project on. Now, I've already setup the thing (an older Coppermine box) Debian as the distro (minimal install) My linksys router forwarding the port to the specific IP address TortoiseCVS as the client on the Windows boxes where the dev is being done DynDNS.com to keep track of the Comcast trickery. I tried Gentoo, then thought maybe I should do Knoppix but when I found out that it sucked on hard disk I went with Debian. Was this the right move? I want a distro that is simple to run, doesn't require X and is incredibly stable.
