Great Help Tool for Newbies

Hi...I'm a newbie also and have had my share of problems...I've re-installed "Mandrake 10" 3 times already by not doing/knowing the proper procedure. What I did was make a file with notebook, put an icon for it on my desk top, and when I'm looking or searching for any help, I can copy and paste it to the file so I have it for a later time. Sometimes I get a few good tips or links and if I save them, then I'll know where they are when I want to do my tweaks and repairs... Works great for me

I agree with you

I have also had my share of needing to find things I have done before. The only difference is I hard copied mine to a three ring binder. I know kinda primitive but after losing the file when you have to re-install again you will appreciate it. I even print screenshots for things I might need to redo. Just and Idea.
