This is something I need to do as well, any hints? I'm on 2.71 still and would
like to move up soon. I THINK all I really will have to do us run the code
enable web page, but I am not sure.

I've only briefly thought about it in the past, but as you have not come up
with any ephifany. The couple of changes I have made where to move my mh.log
file to /tmp/mh.log, but I really should move that to /var/log/mh.log so that
they are all in the correct location.
In the past I also, in an attempt to allow drives to spin down, had my
TEMPORARY drive for mh reside on a RAM disk. This significantly speed up web
page caching as well. The final thing I have done is create my own code dir
with sub-dirs of the sounds and webpages that I wanted to over ride MH stock

I'd like to get my jabber support in MH up to par. Since my network is small I
don't use DHCPD, opting for static instead. On occassion it would be nice to
run CRON, but I get by with misterhouse doing most of it.

Other than the standard, "keep good notes"? Since you are on redhat using the
rpms will help speed up the process. The linux box here is LFS 3.3. When I
upgrade to LFS 5.0 to take advantage of GCC 3.x, it will take me a couple of
weeks. At least I can log in from work to speed things along.
