just to make sure, blackbox for windows isnt linux. It is a windows shell replacement based on the *nix window manager blackbox.

dajerk --

You might want to find the Linux Documentation Project's guidebooks -- in particular, the "Linux User's Guide", "Linux System Administrator's Guide", and "Linux Network Administrator's Guide".  Your distribution also likely provides distribution-specific manuals.

Is this not asking about Linux?  Man my English skills must be incredably rusty.  ;)

Newbie mistake, it's cool; we all go through that phase.  I once thought that Linux ran on MS-DOS... ah, memories
