CYBERNET SIGNS DISTRIBUTORS FOR NETMAX THIN SERVER SERIES.

Cybernet Systems Corporation has made Linux server software available to retailers and resellers through agreements with several of the industry's largest distributors for the company's NetMAX thin server series.

Distributors agreeing to carry NetMAX WebServer, NetMAX FileServer and NetMAX FireWall products include Ingram Micro (NYSE: IM), Navarre Corporation (NASDAQ: NAVR) and Frank Kasper & Associates.

Cybernet's NetMAX thin server/Internet appliance products are the first Linux-based thin servers to hit the market. They offer users a simple and fast way to configure an inexpensive web, file or firewall server that features the reliability of Linux. By using the NetMAX products, anyone who can use a web browser can convert virtually any PC to an Internet appliance in 15 minutes or less.

Minneapolis-based Frank Kasper & Associates is one of the nation's largest distributors of Linux software. "We are very excited to offer our customers Cybernet's NetMAX products through our worldwide distribution network," said Frank Kasper, president.

"We recognize the importance of ensuring the efficient and reliable distribution of NetMAX products to retail outlets in order to maintain their current level of success," noted Greg Emery, Cybernet Systems' senior vice president. "Meeting consumer demand is our top priority, and we can do it by working with high-calibre distributors such as Ingram Micro, Navarre and Frank Kasper for our VAR and retail partners."

The NetMAX Linux-based thin servers were launched in October 1999. Each can be installed alone or in combination, and all are ideal for use by ISPs, small- to medium-sized businesses or corporate workgroups. Each server carries an approximate street price of under $100.
