Knoppix Hacks

From what Jeremy says, it looks like the Knoppix Hacks book is out (I don't get into the bookstore often). As per O'Reilly's usual practice, they've posted some sample chapters on their site. I've used the anti-virus one but I've used a commercial scanner. It's a little known fact that McAfee (and others) sells a Linux-based scanning engine that uses the usual DAT files. Combine that with BSDi's LDP, and you can have a commercial scanner running on a commercial OS (for those with management that insists on commercial products) which can act as a (pass-thru) mail handler or mail server. I've even wedged this thing into Sendmail.

Anyways, the book looks like it's worth the $$.
