Well first time took three days. Now I can do it in about an hour. 28
system that were horridly configured was the practice. By horrid things
only one 500mb partition on a 1gb disk and other offenses to the mind.
All I
had to do was learn the OS and install scripting. My favorite kind of
is taking a wreck like a 486/33 with 8mb ram and 120mb of disk and
making a printserver and still have 60mb unused. I can do NT4/server
faster though as it wants fewer reboots. Once I learn Linux installs I
do that about as fast for a generic install with most packages. It's
the little "you gotta know" things that make a difference.
