Thanks to the several dozen others who sent comments, minor corrections, good suggestions, or good word to us. We always appreciate any feedback. We received no flames so far :-) . Sorry if we could not answer specific questions you sent us on your particularly annoying problem :(( Sorry we are unable to provide free support for individual users. Sorry we do not provide any support to MS Windows users.
Thanks to the few thousands who developed GNU/Linux. Should I mention Richard Stalman and Linus Torvalds by name?
If you wanted to contribute a part (on a useful Linux topic of your choice), we would like to hear from you--we will be happy to include a part with your name, etc. The only condition is that your advice be easy to follow by newbies like us.
If you create your own mirror, pls make sure to update it at least from time to time. LNAG is under development and inaccuracies are found and corrected on regular basis. Our licence requires updates (if available on http://sunsite.dk/linux-newbie) else please remove your outdated mirror.
Hope this helps. Best regards, Stan and Peter Klimas (firstname.lastname@example.org)
