Relative Newbie Tries Things Out

Posted 01-11-2009 at 04:20 PM by and3583

I've only been using linux for a year or so, and I don't expect to set the world on fire with this blog, but I'm having lots of experiences as I try and work with different distros, and I want this to be a kind of diary so I can remember how I did things.

If it helps anyone to read it and join in, you're welcome, and I'd be glad to hear your advice if anyone sees me struggling with a problem they know how to fix.
