Fighting Font Frustration. Steve Coile finally got fed up with font problems using Netscape and other tools on his Red Hat Linux System. "If you use Netscape for Red Hat Linux to visit as many Web sites as I do in a day, you've probably found yourself frequently frustrated with how Netscape renders many of them. In some cases, sites are almost unusable because of the horrible appearance and size of fonts. Well, I delved into the matter last weekend and managed to find solutions to most of these problems."

Here is the extremely valuable result of his efforts. Most of the information in his three-part article is fairly portable between distributions.

Dual Booting (DukeOfURL). There is a tutorial on setting up dual-boot systems on the DukeOfURL site. "When dealing with Windows, there's always one thing that must be followed. Install Windows first."

Web sites

Kuro5hin off the net. The news site Kuro5hin, which had been attracting an increasing number of readers with its user-selected news stream, has been forced off the net by a sustained series of denial of service attacks. Kuro5hin was an interesting place, LWN is sad to see it go. We encourage Rusty and the others to make another shot at it, and not let this sort of vandalism succeed. You are missed. (Thanks to Lenz Grimmer).
