Yup, likewise with BT Openworld - no problems with the service despite all
the moans you hear, it's worked flawlessly for me with exactly the same
setup. Occasionally falls over due to the dodgy VIA USB chipset on my server
motherboard though - which is very frustrating as it seems to happen
whenever I upload anything big. But that's definately down to the USB
chipset though.
