Re: Basic Redhat linux list



Shankar was asking on behalf of newbies who know nothing about Linux.

It is unlikely that a newbie would want to learn how to install an operating system before he even read about the user applications. I speak
from experience as I bought the Red Hat Bible a few weeks ago and have to  refer to it for most of the 'Install' messages. The messages have
been of great value as they have convinced me it is better to pay a few hundred pounds to a company and let them tackle these installation
problems.

Majordomo does run a linux-newbie mailing list but even this is too thick with jargon for someone who has not read a book on the subject.

If anyone knows how to find a Linux user group, or even a specialist magazine, in Southern England then please let me know by direct email.

If there is not, I would suggest that they contact the closest one and find out what they need to do to get one going. Knowing others that run the same OS is a great way to make friends and also it is a fun way to share information. Again, even with a group, there is no replacement for reading the fine manual. ;)
