Song: The First Cut Is The Deepest
Artist: Cat Stevens
Album: New Masters
Notes: The most well known covers were by Rod Stewart and Sheryl Crow. I still prefer Cat Steven’s version although I do like the musical arrangement on Stewart’s cover.

I’ve been trying to install Ubuntu 7.10 server. I think it’s strange that during the setup I’m never prompted to set a root password. Much of the configuration requires login as root. I’ve found a trick to edit sudo so that it doesn’t require a password but there’s no security in that method. I installed LAMP but I’m sure there’s some configuration to be done and I need to set up folders with permissions and all that. I wish I knew what the hell I was doing. My Linux skills are extremely lacking. The Penguin Force is not strong with me. I’m not even a padawan. I’m probably too old to start the training.
I’m concerned about all the lockups with FrankenWeb lately. This new server could be Son of FrankenWeb. If I can figure out how to log in as root, I might even be able to make it work with a static IP address. Wouldn’t that be swell? It would also be swell if I could install a browser, an FTP client, and some other software. A GUI interface might be nice too.
