There are some belated tutorial on the CCP14 site on installing 
Redhat Linux 6.2 and MS-Windows dual/multi-boot systems for 
Crystallographic Applications. 

The default in these installations is to have no open
ports that could be used for probing and hacker entry 
points.

Includes:
  Generic Desktop PC: Installing Redhat 6.2 on a Dual 
    Boot Win95 system via Network/FTP/HTTP Install
  
  Generic Desktop PC: Installing Redhat 6.2 on a Dual 
    Boot Win95 system via via Local CD-ROM Install

  Toshiba Tecra Laptop: Installing Redhat 6.2 on a Dual 
    Boot Win95 system via Network/FTP/HTTP Install
 
  Toshiba Tecra Laptop: Installing Redhat 6.2 on a Dual 
    Boot Win95 system via Local CD-ROM Install

This makes use of the freely available Ranish Partition 
and Boot Manager:  http://www.users.intercom.com/~ranish/part/

This is mainly optimised for getting the System S/Platon 
suite (plus System S friendly programs: Shelx, Dirdif, 
Crunch and Sir97) up and running  on a PC (streamlined 
Redhat installations do not tend to include the Fortran 
compilers).

A list of Crystallographic (mainly small molecule and powder
diffraction oriented) programs that run on Linux but not Windows
is viewable at:

The most recent addition being:
  ZEFSAII GPL software for real-space method for zeolite structure 
     solution from powder diffraction data

The most recent addition being:
"ESPOIR for Linux" - GPL'd Monte Carlo structure solution software 
for powder diffraction.

I would be happy to hear of anything missing - relevant to
getting other crystallographic analysis software installed 
and happily running.
