last week, there are a lot of fundamental issues with the question you

Please do avail yourself of the resources that abound on the web,
particularly centos.org and many og the wikis you can find, and most

This list does not flame newbies except those who, like me, started
off with an attitude and asked a lot of fundamentally stupid questions

Due diligence will get you a lot farther than shortcuts (largely
because the shortcuts usually get responses like RTFM, GIYF and other,
less kind four letter (words and) acronyms).

Best wishes.
