    How to post a question


    When asking questions on the linux forum:
    Please post the distribution/version of linux that you are using. This is very important because different distros have different tools. Please say something like:

    I'm using Mandrake X
    This is using Fedora Core 1
    I'm using RedHat 7.3 Linux on a dual CPU computer.

    For generic tips on posting questions, please read: http://forums.devshed.com/t24097/s.html

    Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Your friendly neighbourhood moderators.

    I think it would be wise if users mentioned which desktop they use, as well. KDE and Gnome have different menus and built-in configuration tools, and giving Gnome directions to a KDE user (or vice-versa) will only confuse them.
