Maybe someone could help me out. I would like to report a bug but I am
not quite sure what happened.
I made a parallel port micro controller programmer on Sunday.
Since my desktop system does not have a parallel port anymore [noticed
this after I was done :( ] I connected the programmer to my server which

Mainboard: VIA EPIA-M (I think this has a 1GHz CPU)
Storage: LVM 2x 250GB
special configuration: grub2, /boot on LVM
installed: apache2, php5, mysql, samba, sshd
Any takers :) ?
