Want to bodge together a set of config files for Ralink RT2400 based cards such as the Minitar MNW2BPCI without using X on the machine? Try this BASH script. On a good day, it may use Linux™’s /dev/random to generate WEP-104 keys and jam them into a configuration template for you. If you just want the WEP keys, fellow Aussie Jason Hecker's WEPgen site instead, for instant gratification. This code should work for any RT2400 based card (MNW2BPCM, for example), but I’ve not tried it.
Linux, along with Solaris, also came out ahead of Windows in terms of administration costs, despite the fact that it’s less expensive to hire Windows system administrators. The average Windows administrator in the study earned [USD]$68,500 a year, while Linux sys admins took home [USD]$71,400, and those with Solaris skills were paid [USD]$85,844. The Windows technicians, however, only managed an average of 10 machines each, while Linux or Solaris admins can generally handle several times that. — CIO Update, summarising a Robert Frances Group report
