linuxdoesntwork, I understand you may be frustrated, but I don't think such comments can help anyone.
It's your first post, you've not tried to ask for help.
This forum tries to be as friendy ad possible. With your post, you offend all users - not only those with big knowledge (geeks, but not only), but also those who are new to Linux, trying to find answers to their questions. They're not "a buch of elitist computer geeks". For sure.
