"A quick and easy guide to installing Domino on Linux."

"When Lotus placed their Sneak Preview (SPI) of Domino for Linux on Notes.Net in August of this year, I'm sure even they were surprised that 50,000 people chose to download it -- considering each download was a non-trivial 130MB. This gives some indication of the scale of the interest in Linux, both as an alternative platform in its own right and as a platform for Domino."

"Recently, at Lotusphere '99 in Berlin, Lotus announced the second release of the software, Sneak Preview II (SPII), which has fixed several of the problems associated with the initial version. What scares many people away from taking the plunge and trying SPII out is the steep learning curve associated with Linux, especially if your interest is Domino-on-the-platform rather than the platform itself. This article shows you how to install and setup SPII on a spare PC in less than one hour, with no Linux knowledge. From there you can explore and decide whether you want to invest further time in learning Linux as a Domino platform. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised."
