Already out. :D
Already out. :D
Not 'dumb' enough for me.:lol:
I literally plan to use a "for dummies" book or something very similar. I need hundreds of pages of very very very easy and simplistic info that I can slowly work through. That tip page that you linked might as well have been instructions on how to design nuclear car engines. The only time I've ever been on a linux machine is when I missed the promt on a dual-booted machine in one of my classes...and when linux tried to come up all I got was something about a 'grub error' repeated about 4000 times. I was shocked as to how fish bait could be causing such an error? :lol:
I definitely welcome the user account tips and will keep it in mind when I start linux. Right now I've only got a single windows box but once I pay for fall tuition the current rig will probebly become my dedicated linux box. I'm not trying linux just for kicks, I need to get good...real good. For the next two years I'll be doing offensive and defensive security labs with and against the other machines on my home network as I finish up my degree. Slowly but surely I'll turn myself into a valueable InfoSec employee.
The key thing to remember is, after you get the damn thing installed (after having decided in advance on partitions, and what filesystem to go with, etc), is to set up a non-root user pronto, and then LOG IN AS THAT USER.
Heh. I hosed a few of my old Linux installs (I remember thinking "I thought this Linux business was supposed to be MORE stable than Windows!), I'm sure because I simply didn't understand the power that root had.
Or actually rm -rf / ....
