Re: [vox-tech] Installing ksh



In my real life I'm an Oracle DBA, I go from company to company.  I've never
come in contact with a linux box, in the for profit world (maybe I haven't
been around enough).  From the standpoint of running Oracle, most companies
have HP, Sun, IBM some NT/2000, a smattering of VMS and Novell.  Currently
I'm on HP.
