TechGuy: Please control your frustration and your attitude. I too am a
Linux newbie, and I can assure you, that on this mailing list, there
are some of the nicest and most helpful people you will find in the
world, on any mailing list. They will patiently try to help you, if
you are polite. Akemi is one of the most helpful people here.
Available to you, on centos.org is a Wiki and documentation that you
can download in .pdf form and learn a lot from. RTFM and be polite.
