Hey Brian

normally I sit back and just see whats going on but your mail jumped up
and bit me!

I take note you cover your back by offering apologies and get out of
jail "I'm sorry if this offends" cards.

1: If you know how to help this guy then help him.

2: Why do you have to have more experience to try/use Linux is it a
close shop?

The only way to get even with, or surpass Windows is to get more people
using Linux and not just a select few who jealously guard their
knowledge so that they are members of a select club!

I give you the case for the prosecution: Item 1
The problems you are encountering are simple and typical , so if you
not solve them in Windows, you would be lost in Linux.

That was helpful wasn't it? just a little tip Brian this LUG is were you
go for help.

Why not suggest a CD linux distro at least he could have a look without
going all the way.

Oh no you can't our gang, but don't get upset I did say sorry!

I'm still frothing at the mouth too much to continue.
