    Hello world.

    I'm relatively new to Linux (and life being I'm still a minor), so I figured that the best place to learn about Linux would be the official forums, so here I am. Hope to get to know some of you guys.

    Hey! MisterDood!

    Welcome!

    This is a good place to start indeed. What distro you running now, if I may ask?

    Hello and Welcome. Please enjoy your visit.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    I'm not sure what you mean by distro, but I'm going to take a guess and say Ubuntu 10.10 since yesterday. I used to have an earlier version on Ubuntu that I loved, but Apache wasn't working right, and when I tried to un-install it, I ended up breaking Ubuntu, so my dad downloaded the most up-to-date version, thus here I am. I don't like it much because the instillation disk didn't work right, and my account I made at the start wasn't able to log in due to some file being gone, so I spent 3 hours reading my dad's old Linux books to figure out how to make a new account on a CLI. It was kinda cool.

    Glad it worked out. If you have a bad download, my solution to is re-download, re-burn, and re-install. Saves a lot of time and frustration.

    Go to distrowatch.com, they have links to literally hundreds of different linux distro's. You can also find some older versions of present distro's if you need a lighter or older version.
