    RE: Why Linux ! !
    Until 1995, I was using Amiga, then at the end 1996 three things happened, 1) I went to University of Malta and had an account on the unix lab which ran SunOS4 2) I bought a pc Pentim 100 16 megs ram and it came with windows 95 3) I stumbled on a book with Slackware Suffice to say, I wanted to have a unix at home and so windows95 went out the window, and slackware came in, which then turned to redhat 5.3 when then went to debian and the rest is history.

    RE: Why don't these ebtables rules work right?
    I am not an iptables expert and I am not sure about how you handle the ports 80 and 443 with those forward rules but how about simply doing something along the lines of: iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -s xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -d yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy -m tcp --syn --dport 80 -j ACCEPT

    If the issue is about nvidia driver, what's the point of trying it in a virtual machine??

    RE: run.bat -> Shell bash script Translation needed
    that would be something along the lines of #!/bin/bash echo "jvm" echo 'Newset Client Running" /usr/bin/java -Xmx500m EGUI -- I've neglected the title since that would make it more complicated setting the PROMPT_COMMAND var.

    RE: RHEL or CentOS?
    We use RHEL only on oracle databases primarily because we need the oracle support and oracle will simply drop the phone when they hear that you are not running on a certified OS. But for everything else, I install Centos. If the software/developers tell me RHEL, I go back to them explaning that Centos is exactly RHEL without the Redhat support that I won't need/use anyway.

    RE: Linux command to display files in multiple pages a
    what do you mean exactly by "it did not work" ? ls | more exactly does what you want. It lists all the files and if there is more than a screenfull, then it waits for you to press a key to show the rest. ls | less works better, press the up arrow and you scroll up, down goes down and press the space bar goes to the next contents to fill the whole terminal window
