A Big ThankYou

Just wanted to say thanks to all the posts and replies on how to set up my puter to get on line with Linux. I was using a Best data and picked up a Zoom 56k Modem and did a new Install and Iam now on line. During the process I learned a great deal and read alot. This is my first time with any form of Linux and now have red hat 8 on one machine and Mandrake 10.1 on this one. Since my wife did not find this exciting I need to tell someone else.......Thanks .....Installer36

You just need to know how to present it to her:

"Babe, so I rigged the boxes so that we don't have to pay a ton of money for something that rarely works how we like it to. I then saved us a bunch more money because the hardware that is required to power this new rig is far less, yet can do so much more. I did it all legally too, no need to rip off software developers that overcharge for their mediocre crap, we use free, extremely usable and versatile programs! Yeah that's right, I did it all by myself. Who's the man baby?"


"Uh, you are the worlds greatest husband, please teach me the ways!"
