We would like the kind of functionality Outlook provides for calendars and tasks in an Exchange environment, but without requiring that everyone use Outlook and Exchange.A: There are several free and low-cost project management and collaboration groupware tools, ranging from full-featured project management portals to simple task trackers, or software tool kits that interchange information and data files between open formats and Microsoft Project.To read Steve's response in its entirety, please click here.* Getting on the Internet with AOL and a WRT54G routerBy Ron NutterQ: I am trying to connect to the Internet (AOL) using my laptop.
