Good call. I haven't seen a FAQ for iBCS2. Does any one know whether 
there is one?

If there is one, can we update it?

If there is no such thing, can we compile one?

We can compile a FAQ document and put it on line. But we need to find 
someone to be the host and a place to put it, e.g. FTP or HTTP.

We can put all the FAQs such as how to get Cobol, Foxpro, Progress to 
work and etc. This will be a good document for everyone.

I don't have a personal web page, but I can use my company's home page.

Doe anyone want to take the charge if the FAQ document does not exist?

If no one wants to take it, can I take it? If yes, I need to talk to my 
boss.

Don't worry, no money will be involved. We are all free to maintain and 
distribute it. That is the spirit of Linux!

Cheers,
Batty

There isn't one other than the docs/notes that come with iBCS.
There is the start of an iBCS web site at http://www.purplet.demon.co.uk
although I haven't exactly got very far with things.

If you can find some FAQs :-). Usually there are fairly short
term groupings of similar questions but few that really qualify
as long term FAQs.

My rationale for not including product specific guides with iBCS
is two fold. Firstly because iBCS is supposed to be fire-and-forget
so a ned for guides implies bugs in iBCS :-(. Secondly because
commercial licenses for higher end software often specify limitations
on the type of system and environment they may be used in. Giving
specific instructions for running the software in an unsupported
and unlicensed environment may be an offence in some jurisdictions
and may leave you legally exposed. It's going a bit beyond the
"gee, neat!" world that much of the open source community lives in.

  If you are thinking of using your company's web space you should
probably give this second point plenty of consideration first...

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State

unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
