I'm getting to know what I'm doing gradually by reading articles in TUX
and the odd note in this conference that makes sense. I bought a for
Dummies book to see if that helps - but no. It's not as if I'm thick,
I've got two degrees and have been a lecturer for years - not in
computer science. When I can do Linux properly, I promise to write a
series of step-by step guides, but I reckon it'll take me another year
before I feel half way confident. Is there anyone out there who knows
Linux and can 'teach' it? Best wishes, Derek
