I think Akemi reacted to your thread on the CentOS Forum:
which did get you timely responses that did not say "RTFM" and then you posted
here in the mailing list. Also, recently, there was someone who hid behind some
email address. Here you are TechGuy and on the forum you are  d4rkf1br
and that's
OK, but, it would be better to ask for help either in the Forum, or
here in the mailing
list, one place or the other, and then be patient and courteous and
friendly, until the issue is solved. If you hang out here for
awhile, you will find that the developers and the most knowledgeable and helpful
people on this mailing list all use their real names. Along with many
of the newbies, like

If you are new to Unix/Linux, this is *NOT* something you are going to
learn quickly.
There is a very long learning curve. IMHO, many of the people who are
on this list and using this
Distro are using it because they get better support from this mailing
list than they would if
they paid for a support contract with our upstream.

You can get discouraged and give up and leave, or, you can continue to
hang out here,
and learn, as MHR has. Someday, maybe he will be one of the gurus
here. He's smart. You
can be smart or you can be dumb. It's your choice. Good luck!
