Hi Jim,

Probably should be though.

most improtant bits are

1) pick 'access' when configuring the machine

2) the 'Load' numbers actually matter pick something reasonable

3) make /home/httpd/lonTabs/spare.tab contain at least all of youe

Ah, that be exactly wrong. :-)

1) Lon-CAPA _loves_ memory, really loves it. It will use every last
    bit of it that you make available to it. Fill every machine to the
    brink with memory. Mmmmmm memory good!

2) Access servers should have good to exceptional processing power
    (most of the display/processing of pages will be done here)
3) Library servers should have great disk subsystems
    (all of the data is stored here, you want to be able to get down
    on disk and off again as quickly as you can)
