Well I wouldnt call all that a 'minimal' installation. You can live without
installing X you know.
When I first installed, I just installed the A and N sets (2x4 disks I think),
later on the D set (developement, 9 disks).

Don't forget to get patches to 1.2.9 and 1.2.10 (although they are minimal,
most linux patches seem to patch code indendation, typo's in readme's and
c comments.

1. Linux BUGS? True or False!

Hello All!
I am thinking of installing Linux on my comptuer at home, but I am not really
sure I should.  I have a couple friends that say Linux can be broken into, and
is not very safe.  Has anyone here heard of such a rumor?
  If this rumor it true, can someon please mail me some general holes in Linux
and then tell me how these holes can be fixed.
Thank you in Advance,
 Vikas Jayaswal
