This HowTo addresses the incompatability that QuickBooks 2006 has with Samba-based file-sharing (the Linux de-facto standard for domain control and file sharing).
Summary: Create a new user, group and share. Access the QuickBooks files via the new user by logging onto the share with its credentials.
Why This Tutorial? Because there is no documentation about ColdFusion installation on Debian on the internet. As you know Debian Linux is not supported officially by Adobe. But Debian is one of the mosts used and well known Linux distributions especially for server usage and I think there would be some other people who want to use Debian and ColdFusion together.
SAMBA (Domain Controller) Server For Small Workgroups With Ubuntu 5.10 "Breezy Badger"
This is a detailed description about the steps to set up a Ubuntu based server (Ubuntu 5.10 - Breezy Badger) to act as file- and print server for Windows (tm) workstations in small workgroups. This howto uses the tdb backend for SAMBA to store passwords and account information. This is suitable for workgroups for up to 250 users and is easier to setup than an LDAP backend. A second howto covering the installation of LDAP + SAMBA will be published on HowtoForge soon.

Running A MySQL-Based DNS Server: MyDNS
In this tutorial I will describe how to install and configure MyDNS, a DNS server that uses a MySQL database as backend instead of configuration files like, for example, Bind or djbdns. This has the advantage that you can easily use web-based frontends to administrate your DNS records. You could even write your own frontend, e.g. using PHP, to interact with the MyDNS database. MyDNS simply reads the records from the database, and it does not have to be restarted/reloaded when DNS records change or zones are created/edited/deleted! This is a major advantage.
Getting Things Done in the New Year
What a better way to start the New Year off than to get organized. There's this really cool Rails application called Tracks that will give you a web-based management interface for organization. Setting it up is pretty easy, and that's what I'll be going over here.
The main purpose of these tools is easy to maintain proftp server
a web-based tool written in PHP aimed at managing users and groups for a ftp-server called "proFTPd". Because of the ammount of work gone into this project it also doubles as a system- information tool providing information like free hard-drive space, memory- statistics and much more (Something like phpSysInfo - with the notable difference that my status code so far only supports Linux, FreeBSD and Windows NT). To get a feel for how all this works you can take a gander at the screenshots-page and figure out for yourself if this is the right tool for you.
On install of Debian, select no packages to be installed, allow it to connect to the internet and let it download anything it needs, usually its libs etc. Exim is most likely installed at this point so dont worry it will be removed shortly.
