    I think the docs on the gentoo site are great. They even have an openafs howto. I found their forums/irc to be helpful as well. Though one problem I found is to many newbies reply with answers that are completely irrelavant to your problem.

    Ho ho, maybe they were just trying to help? I sometimes do answer some quiz inappropriately! LOL. I think some good linuxers just tend to ignore newbies, cause some newbies' questions just repeat and repeat themselves and it is a never ending story, cos there are always newbies coming in, for heaven's sake, people must have their first time!!

    I am not talking about newbies posting problems that a simple google search can solve. I was talking about legitamite questions and they reply to them having no idea what they are talking about. For instance, I had a glibc problem I posted and it ended up being an error in nsswitch not looking for services file in correct place which I found. Well anyway I had repsonses from "you need to recompile gcc" to "make sure you are typing emerge correctly without any spelling errors".

    Even though I'm a proud Debian user, I'd say RedHat has the best documentation. I still read it from time to time when I need to understand things.

    Recently I've found answers to most of my problems in the Gentoo forums.

    I bought a copy of suse home and they won't give any support! I called and they wouldn't help not with anything.

    Hmm. Linus uses Suse at home. I'm only going to think that Suse must be good or he wouldn't be using it. As for support, that's a total different story.
