But it is a sutiable place for beginnger install questions. The list
even has the title "Getting started with Red Hat Linux".

However, Vikas' post wasn't about installs. It was a resume post seeking
a job. It really is off topic. Perhaps this can be attributed to
avgueness in the "getting started" term. For this list it is to do with
getting started installing and running RedHat linux, not getting started
in a careers or job.
