You're not wrong there Stevetgn. Though in some cases it also poor education, which is why I've got a couple of books to make a small attempt at righting my wrongs.
Though that doesn't make it any easier to "sink in", because I have to keep reading Komakinos' post for the signature lesson and then hit Lynne Truss' "Eats Shots and leaves" for the correct use of colon/semi-colon (which I wasn't taught in school - two particular punctuation marks that weren't "trendy" at the time)!
@ TheMadAd19, how are you getting on with mandrake ? because that was my original choice of distro (though I always went for boxed set powerpack dvds because some of the more annoying - until you'd learned them - things were pre-configured).
p.s. The only reason that I went for gentoo (once I had more than just a vague idea of what I was doing), was to get away from mandrakes 6 monthly update/upgrade cycle, because their installer is pretty damn good, but the upgrade tool often breaks things.
Plus, if you get it installed OK, then stick to using mandrake rpms (via the mandrake control centre software manager - URPMI) then you shouldn't (in theory) suffer any visits to dependency hell!
