I would just like to say hello to all in the forums. It's taken me one week, 4 distributions and 9 installations to finally be 90% up and running on my desktop and as of an hour ago my laptop as well, but I can now say that I'm reasonably comfortable using linux (mandriva 2009.1 free_64 and one_kde) and free software for all of my current needs. Tomorrow will be the real test though since I use the laptop for work installing and troubleshooting for a small wisp. Also, I'd like to say, "Thank You," to all those that take the time to answer the questions thoroughly and patiently. This forum has been a lifesaver for me and my systems.
