Pickle said - "The point is, If you don't know what a command does, look it up BEFORE you exicute it."
I don't think you can give better advice than this!!! When I started working here over 3 years ago, my boss taught me a few Unix commands (all of which I have forgotten) to take care of our Unix database server. One day it was having problems, so I thought I could fix it myself. I fixed it alright. You can't have database problems if you don't have a database! Yup, whatever I did blew away the entire database. Thank GOD for backups!
I'll check out that command in my Linux 7.2 Bible before I use it
This server is older than dirt, but if I had to guess, I would say that it came with one of the 128 MB DIMMs and the other 128 and 256 were installed later.
Thanks, yet again,
