Thanks everyone!

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone answering my questions over the last couple of days since I found this site. Thanks to you guys I went from inquiring about linux to up and running as of today! (RH9). I been using it for only a few hours now and i'm already considering formating win out forever. The install and desktop is much easier than I expected, plus my system startup time and internet connection seem to be much faster, and just with the programming that came with the distro I have more than I had b4. (lot of wasted money over the last couple years). Just wish I switched earlier.

Thank you, thank you!!

I just wanted to thank everyone who was so helpful to me on this board. I had requested help from other places but you people were the only ones who responded with understandable answers. It took 1 1/2 days to get up and running again and so far it's perfect. A lesson to be learnt for me was ALWAYS make a boot disk!
Thanks Del

I also wanted to shoutout to those who are always there to help. I love this community. I've actually learned more through these forums than reading books...or well..maybe not..but..oh well you know what I mean - hehe.

I love the fact that LQ is always so busy and always brings new people into the world of Linux *cough UNIX too *cough hehe.

And again, thanks to all the supporters, thanks to all the developers and thanks to everyone who has helped me specifically with every one of my posts. You guys rock!

Take care and I'll be starting another post soon again.
