My Introduction
Howdy all

I'm pretty much a Linux newbie, and have chosen Mandriva as my distro of choice... Mainly cos the people i know who use linux use this distro - easy help source (when they're not busy).

I can't offer to much help and require a fair bit myself, but as i learn i will become more useful to the Mandriva forum. For now i'm going to be asking a lot of questions.

Hidi How, dungeonmaster

and welcome to the show.

Just a bit of an advice. Did you check out for a great list of tutorials, so some of your questions might be answered before hand and also if you want to answer question from the not so 'Willing to read people' .

I collect music (my CD's only get used 1ce, to rip to mp3), i dj sometimes with my pevey CS1200X & 4x 15" spkrs.
