I dont know about NGOs but a CDAC training centre I know is trying to
make the switch from Windoze servers to Linux servers. The problem is
that the sys-admin there has zero knowledge about big professionally
built servers. I dont claim to know either but using some "free proxy"
on Win XP Pro speaks little of their tech know how. Internet "sharing"
can be easily achieved using RRaS in M$ Win servers...
