    Hello Everybody


    Hello

    I'll admit I'm a newbie to the world of linux and some of you have been great help to me in understanding how to download/install, and other info. But the biggest thing for me, is that I'm totally FREE of Microsoft, at least at my house. I know I will be asking alot of questions like how to get my digital camera to work and othe goodies but, I learn as I go and I've already installed a "shockwave-flash" plug-in, of course with a tip or two, but I guess that is why we all help each other, and when I can pass on something that I know how to do, I will return the favor. Open source is totally.

    Yes, that is the correct spelling of Ohioan, I live in Kent, where you, as they say, if you don't mind spilling the beans.

    I like your "George the Monkey" and Tux, I used to have a Tux, but it grew to small

    I'm going to ask you this question, Where do I find "digiKam"? I looked most places I would it would be there but to no avail.
