Please point out what shortcut that I tried to take?  From my email,
with the information I provided which I did get from various sources
including the wiki tips and tricks, and other sites... If you read my
questions you would see that I was asking for clarification on what I
was understanding all these sources to say and imply.

I don't know what shortcut I was taking by asking what I asked?

Now I am just tired of having to defend myself for no good reason.

Sorry this has transpired, truly am because I was hoping for more both
from CentOS and from the community that supports it and is always
touting the values of Linux and OpenSource, I was hoping to become a
convert finally but instead I am more discouraged now after the
reponses I have gotten then I was before.
