If you choose to install freeware, you should have a look at
the BIRCH web site:

BIRCH is a Sun/Unix-based resource available to researchers
at the University of Manitoba. This site uses 100% freeware.
If you click on "Build Your Own BIRCH Site" you can get
a bit of a head start on building you own system. This
page still needs a lot of work!
