announced its new OpenLinux server product, code named "Project 42," is
entering open beta and will be available for download on March 19th from

Based on the new Linux 2.4 kernel and targeted to OEMs and VARs, Project

incorporates a secure Web server, a file and print server, and a set of
network infrastructure servers, including DHCP, DNS, and firewall.

Linux-based server product and will be the base for future Linux and UNIX
integration products," said Drew Spencer, chief technology officer for
Caldera Systems.

when setting up servers for our clients and make money by providing our
customers an excellent quality product," said Ron Herman, president of
Blue
Chip Computer Systems, beta-site for Project 42. "Its install was
straightforward, and it's incredibly easy to manage."

enhancements, LSB 1.0 implementation, Java SDK version 1.3, and a Caldera
Volution deployment agent. Feedback on Project 42 can be sent to
