Of course, I too am quite the newbie to the UNIX/LINUX world, while I am remarkably facinated by the journey thus far. I have primarily been involved with MS based systems, and am not saying I have wasted much time with it, because I try to keep that open mind as much as possible. I am trying to extend my knowledge base and become a better and more well rounded computer geek by investigating the different dist. of LINUX, understanding processes hidden from me in the worlds I have been so blessed to begin with. Please take me under your wings, and help me grow, as my goals include creating a Linux cluster withing the next 2 years.
