Hi, Parshwa;

I've been following this thread for some time now.  Had to go back to the
original message since the responses seem to have covered about every topic
except the original one.  I'll asume you now have some kind of internet
connection since you seem able to respond fairly rapidly.  

One very good reference, if it's available where you are, is Linux Pro
Magazine.  They have aeveral tutorials each issue along with good information
and free distros from different producers.  Another good resource would be the
Linux or Fedora Bible series.  Lots of good information, how-tos, comparisons
of different ways to accomplish a goal and why, etc.  

I learned much of my linux knowledge from RedHat when they had the 5.x series
(before Fedora).  Yes, Fedora is a bit harder to learn from as a beginning
point, but you learn more that way.  Not just knowledge, but also the hows and
whys of things.  Keep up learning and in a while you'll get where you want to
