The preview page (page 98 of each issue) is based on information available at the time we send the current issue to the printer. Every issue evolves over the course of the editorial process. New stories appear, old stories drop out, and we perform a constant balancing act to bring you the best possible mix of articles. Sometimes the end result is not an exact match with the original vision described in the preview. We apologize for the confusion. IPCop is a great topic, and we'll try to run down a good article on it for you.

The final sentence should say, "Also, you can use Extended TC-Volumes to save configuration and user data for OpenOffice, Evolution, and GnuPG settings."
