Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Mabe if someone got me a fast connection I could stand the page loading times which makes me impatient with the editing. <shrug>
Maybe you should learn to have patience and go over your post before submitting it. If you give technical help, might as well be right the first time instead of giving bad information just because you mistype something due to inpatience. I also thought I saw a spell checker when replying or creating a new thread?
How about letting a user delete his post if it has not recieved any replies? That way, a question that is not making sense or has been solved by other means can be removed without showing up on searches. Just a thought...
I disagree Pcghost, in your case you're turning the argument around, because you posted 3 (kinda) similar threads in a short timespan. *You* shouldn't do that cuz it's close near spamming the place IMNSHO.
As for the "not making sense" argument, there are *very few* posts here that are that warped they don't make sense to anyone. OTOH if a question has been resolved by other means, it would be a matter of [i]plain simple netiquette[i] for the poster to give a little back to the community showing what was the solution (not only saying it was resolved). it may help fellow LQ members. And besides that your fellow LQ members are trying hard to keep the percentage unanswered posts below 10% (or less).
