My isp offers a dedicated box for 30€/38$/20£/month. I want one for my BT but it is OS'd by Linux.
Is there really no way to run a BT server on a Linux dedicated box.
If not, how would you proceed to remotely replace Linux by Windows.
Some guys offer to do it for 100 € + Windows license. I think they create a bootable Dos partition and then load a windows system image from there. I would like to do it myself but don't know anything about linux nor how to make an system image :eek: .
I need any advice, any link to tutorial (and maybe your future concrete help), that will help me to understand what has to be done and how to do it.
Thanks.

To my knowledge, Spearhead was the last version of MOHAA to be ported to Linux.

The problem with converting your dedicated Linux box to Windows is you may well not get any support or you could have your agreement revoked (Windows being a bigger target for hackers and designed originally with almost no concern for security, tends to be very vulnerable if left unpatched). I would check to be sure before doing it or you could lose a lot of hours not to mention some money if this move is going to be nixed by your hosting service.
