It's not a forum. It's Usenet. You win-droid Google Groups posters just
don't get that, do you?

I'm sorry it's a Usenet. I stand corrected. I just said forum because
you post with a problem and people try to help.
Obviously not as much as you think, since a) it's obnoxious to stream
insults and obscenities, even to someone who's done the same to you ,
and b) it's a newsgroup, not a forum.
 rare exceptions are made if the insult is particularly witty, which
yours was not
I know it was not witty, but it got the job done. Cut me some slack,
it's like my 8th topic or something and no one bothered to give me
and Keith Keller. For example, the alt.os.linux.slackware FAQ
_encourages_ users to flame posters who ask questions which have
been asked before or could've been researched using google, or have been
documented in the Linux documentation project,
There is nothing fundamentally wrong with that philosophy, just as long
as the participants are aware of the rules in advance. That way, everyone
knows what to expect and won't take criticism personal. But the treatment
given a poster on Sunday night was beyond the pale:
Dan C is in a _bad_ mood. And ANC is a close second.
That said, RTFM ;-) Here are some good resources to learn about GNU/Linux:
The wikipedia has as much information as you can absorb:
And I also stand by my earlier advice to you, and hope you follow it.
Windows doesn't prepare you for being the root/admin on a GNU/Linux
system. Also, Windows doesn't prepare you for being the admin/root on a
Windows system ;-). As you've already seen, the learning curve to
GNU/Linux can be steep. But remember, no one will stop you from learning
as much as you want. As I said earler, "lucky for you the internet has
been invented and anything can be researched at the tip of your fingers."
Yeah, yeah. Patience. How long will that take?
