all that everyone is trying to say to you is like any adult would do
when you need help...... THINK about what you are saying and how you ask
it so that it will be clear to the other party involved, THEN ask it. if
you are answering a question, make sure you KNOW the answer before you
fire off a half thought of response.  Were all here to help each other,
but posting crap about fedora on an ubuntu list is just plain in
excuseable.  End of story, move on, were done here.
