> Hello experts!
>
> Finally, the other company has forced me to jump ship and so I will be going back to my country for a short vacation and come back here in PNG to work on another company after a month or so. Sort of forced me because they waited for my decision since early March and suddenly said last Sunday, "If you won't resign on the coming week, much as we like you we, will start looking for another!". Left me no choice, don't they?

> Now, these are the needs for me:

>
> 2. They are acquiring a VSAT to connect to the internet and to outstations, and they want me to set it up as well (oh boy!).
>
> 3. They wanted me to recommend the hardware to be used (expected).
>
> Questions:
>
> 1. Can anyone please point to me the proper version of Windows Server 2003 to be purchased? Within the compound, there would be around 30 units that have varying OS (XP, Vista, and I've overheard Linux). Would it be better to purchase the 64-bit instead of the 32-bit considering Vista is now around? I presume they will be wanting me to make a link on other places as well when VSAT is installed.

> 2. Has anybody around here experienced VSAT installation before? If so, can you please point me to a link where I can start studying?
>
> 3. I need some info on the appropriate server hardware, I am opting for an IBM eServer x Series, which model? Any link would be highly appreciated. I am looking at this one: http://shopping.msn.com/specs/ibm-eserver-xseries-226-8648-xeon-3-ghz/itemid25280619/?itemtext=itemname:ibm-eserver-xseries-226-8648-xeon-3-ghz

> Has anyone have any experience with this model?

> They presumed that I am already expert in these matters. I think they got impressed by my resume. Sure, I have some knowledge with server 2003; but I never focused on that and let my right hand man do those for me (that is why I hired him in the first place). I loved programming but sadly I was always hired for networking and troubleshooting. Oh well, we need to live!

> Hoping for your assistance on these matters. TIA!

Hi Jun,

Sorry to hear you jumping off the ship... but as we always say that things happen for a reason... I'm sure all of us here in foxite are happy that you have found a new employer just in time...

Good luck on your new job!
