    Welcome to the forums! And yes, the forum does rock - really dead on folks here.

    Do you have a ltitle Linux knowledge or are you familiar with it?

    FreeBSD?, NetBSD?, OpenBSD?, DragonFlyBSD? Which one?

    Hi nader_me,

    I have a nice document that you should read (I've just started Linux as well but I've got lots of coursework to do so I'v had to stop it for a while). The link is:

    http://www.tldp.org/LDP/intro-linux/intro-linux.pdf

    Yea, give BSD a try although my plan is to get proficient at Linux in gerneral before I modify kernel code.

    Hi Tim, he/she wants the source code of the *BSD not Linux. I can help you but I need more specific info.
    If you are new to open source, Linux is usually friendlier. You can get a full kernel tarball here www.kernel.org and the source code of some popular open source programs like (download the tarballs, not the binaries)
    Postfix http://www.postfix.org/
    Apache http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi
    Squid http://www.squid-cache.org/
    VSFTPD http://vsftpd.beasts.org/

    Extract it and browse the newly created dir

    Hi Juan,

    I just posted that link for general information. I take it that nader_me send you a private message?
