Oh I did not know rack mounted machines could be so noise. I been toying with 
the idea of getting some old second hand units to play with to go with my 24 
port 1U 10/100 hub I recently picked up at a local computer fair. Would it 
cause any problems stacking them on top of each other or would they have a 
tendency to over heat with out the racking? The room I would be running them 
in is a small bed room, large enough for a single bed and bed side table and 
I plan to install my own home made air conditioning!

Yes my connection seemed fast when I upgraded from a 2Mb connection at the 
beginning of the year, but it seems a bit sluggish now with Azureus file 
sharing and regular Linux distro DVD ISO down loads!

keep a note of my email address for the future and if I can be of any 
assistance along the same lines drop me a line, my connection will be 
increasing as and when finances allow.
