Linux Quiz

Hello All!

I'm looking for a site or some sort of "Linux IQ" test. I've been using Linux for a while and want to evaluate my proficiency in the OS and where I need improvement in my expertise (if that's the right word).

Any suggestions are welcome!

Surely you can judge how good you are on your own:

Do you need to read docs to configure every little thing?
Do you have to think twice how to accomplish a task, or can you do it straight away?
Do you make many mistakes in configuration files preventing associated programs working?

How long would it take for you to write xorg.conf from scratch? How long does it to recover take when you screw up as root? Did you make a bootdisk? Do you have a livecd lying around? You can do that on your own and I might setup a quiz
