There are a few things to discuss. Decisions to be made are as
much policical and person preference as technical. After 1 Sep
is a good time for me.

You do not need _RT_ Linux. "RT" is only required if you want to
run the real-time driver software. You would only want to do this
is you had a MKIII interface card physically stuffed into the computer.
To monitor, or even control any other TASS site all you need is a
UNIX-like OS. Linux is not required. SunOS ir SGI's Irix should
work as well. Anything that can run ximtool or SAOtng.
RTL would be required for any testing. You take a risk however
testing this kind of software on a live WEB/DBMS/FTP server.

When you do move it then you can use RT Linux. By then Nick
should have a working system you can copy. I'd recommend RTL
on the camera controller computer(s) and a standard OS release
on the DBMS/Web host.
