First of all, I would like to thanks all of you who are willing to answer my question. It made me very happy at the first time I came here.

@malekmustaq: thanks for providing me with a good training material. I am into Linux, Unix and I don't mind if it's 500+ pages or 1000+ pages. I will read it all.

@Esswendle: thank you. I am currently working with Linux and direct answers also help me alot.

@utanja: I spent hours searching for these files and got nothing clear, may be I lack some Google skills, and that's why this forum is helping me alot.

By all means give them a link to more information, but only after giving a brief answer to their question.

FFS... is this really a help forum? It's becoming clear to me why Linux isn't more widely used.
And if you can't answer the question, then why are YOU posting?? This is your second post, and all you've done so far is complain about what others have said.

Contribute, answer questions, or don't....but don't complain about what others do, unless it affects you.

And I'm sure others will tell you this too...if you're not content with Linux, use something else. I'm sure the folks on the Microsoft or Mac boards would love your input....we don't make money from this, and it won't bother us if you don't use Linux....
