http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello, there. My name is Eric Smith. I am a Linux newbie. I have not yet installed a Linux, but I'm aiming for Slackware (for the learning curve). I have (sadly) used Windows most of my life. Only recently have I met Linux. PS: what is this 'alt:news' and similar links about? I can't find anything on them. Google just gives me pointless information... (HowTos)
