Getting deeper into Linux

After the upgrade to Gutsy, I had to reinstall VMWare Server, which wasn't more difficult than downloading a package, running a script and accepting all the defaults. Then I had to reboot the Windows XP VM to get the networking from the VM to my machine working smoothly again.

Also, I have decided to start porting all the scripts and programs and databases that I use to administer the mountain of anime in this house, over to Linux. The only thing I boot into WinXP for anymore is for running the program that fills a disc to optimum capacity and burns it. And every time I do so, I find it irritating.
The first order of business is to convert the MS Access database plus VB6 program into a MySQL database and PHP script. The first steps have already been made, and so far it's looking promising.
