A quick bit of background first.
I have been using Linux for many years and Ubuntu since 5.04

Overview and Expectations

Posted 04-02-2006 at 10:40 PM by kf4otn

In a few short weeks I'll start my training for my RHCT. For many who read this it would sound like I was going for an A+ certification because RHCT shouldn't be that hard, right?

But when I started blogging, things changed...and for the worse! While nearly every writer program now has a spell checker, my FireFox (Deer Park V1.5) browser didn't, and believe me, I needed one bad!
