(apt-get install quagga, *xen etc.. read the various FAQ's online) XORP is of course also a great one, but doesn't have the 100% cisco-alike feeling. You could possibly even use livecd's for this. It might be an idea for somebody indeed to make a pre-cooked iso which does something like this, then again, like quite a few other things, as it is quite specific, a mere "howto build a fat Xen-Quagga howto" might be more appropriate than yet another distribution... >> That said of course, who still types directly into their >> routers?

Of course, but that is why, when you build a network, you first set it up in a lab. You can't make something when you don't know what you are going to do with it. A good extensible design and above all, a lot of experience, will help a lot in that area. Greets, Jeroen
