What is the ipddp0 device?

The Debian Installer says that when you choose driver modules to
install, it will provide a page of description on each module; but it
doesn't. Therefore I had to guess which modules I might need, I
installed a module for AppleTalk.

I now have a ipddp0 device loading at boot. What is this device? Does
the driver I loaded into the kernel expect to find an AppleTalk card
* on my machine? Should I remove this device from the config

Really what I want to do is use my Linux box (an old 486 laptop) as a
file server on my home LAN using FTP. While I was installing, I
thought, "Hey, AppleTalk, couldn't hurt..." But what I want to use is a
3com PCMCIA ethernet card.

I would like the advice of a Macintosh user who has a LAN with mixed
Macs and Linux boxes: What is the most sensible and hassle-free method
for doing this?

 Use reply-to address.


1. This clone thing...am I stupid, or am I right?


I admire your passion, Chris..

The only issues which have kept myself from looking seriously at Linux
would be:

* It's Unix and the learning curve to start getting productive strikes me
as probably very steep

* It doesn't support plug-and-play.  If your hardware doesn't have Linux
drivers, it don't play..

* Not nearly the amount of developers out there doing stuff for Linux as
there are for Wintel.  Can I get MS Office for Linux?  Can I get
Photoshop for Linux?  Can I get QuarkXpress for Linux? etc.. a big turn
off for me.
