If you encounter any problems, and you can't find any answers of USENET, try
irc. There is a channel called #linux and it's full of those geeky unix hacker
types who can answer almost any questions posed. One *really* cool bonus of
using linux is that if you find a bug, it's usually fixed within a day or so.
Try getting service like that from Microsoft or the like - I've been waiting for
a bug fix in MS Foxpro now for 4 months and they STILL haven't fixed it (insert
deep grumble noises here).
They've released a version of linux now on cd-rom. I've heard mixed responses,
but the general feedback I've heard has been good. It costs about $US65 last
I checked. MAIN advantage is that you can install a Slackware package in under
15 minutes (with options <40 minutes). Try it on disk first, if you can find
the >20 disks you'll need for linux and all the X disks ;)

I'll believe that when I see it >:)
