    Welcome to LinuxForums!

    Congrats on taking the plunge! I hope you enjoy Linux as much as we all do!
    It's a great system.

    As far as where to post, you couldn't go wrong with either the Newbie Section or the areas for your specific distro.

    Take a look around, and I hope you have fun!
    Jay

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    I gave my old laptop to my grandson about 3 years ago when I got a new one, and it included two system drives - one with Windows, and the other with Ubuntu Linux. He used the Windows drive until one day he spilled a soda on the keyboard, and it let the drive's magic smoke out! Since he is a budding engineer, he took the case apart. Cleaned all the stuff up real well, but the drive was toast. So, he plugged in the Linux drive, fired it up, and never looked back! Now he's writing kernel device drivers...
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
