Redhat _9_ has been EOL'd. You'd think anyone paying Accpac prices
could demand they use something from this century at least. Doesn't
Accpac have any sort of test suite of data they could use to verify
it's working correctly? Guess not. And I guess they have no
understanding of (or cares about) system level security flaws that may
need to be fixed? Where are those going to come from for RH 8?
All you can do is inform the boss, so he knows the situation when he
goes ahead and does it anyway. :-P
Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
