Howdy all,
Just wanted to saye hello. I'm in the process of building my first LFS and 
am thoroughly enjoying it. I've been into computers for 2 years now and 
have been playing with linux for about a year. Unfortunately the first comp 
I built for a linux box was totally incompatable, lesson well learned: do 
your homework. So this year I built a new box for linux and must have 
gotten it right because it absolutely blew win2k away in performance. Now 
I'm trying my hand at LFS. i wiped a 40gig drive that had win2k on it and 
now I only run linux and I love it.
 Unless your a network administrator there just isn't any challenge in using 
windows ( and then the challenge is tryin keep the network  secure and 
avoid infectious pc diseases lol ), and I wanted a challenge. I'm not into 
flaming microsoft, I believe their product has a place in the market, I 
just disapprove of their business practices. Seems therefore that linux is 
a natural for me as I want a challenge plus I believe in what the os 
community stands for.
  Anyway thats kind of where I stand and I appreciate all on here and the 
linux community as a whole for their help and contributions. If there is 
something a non-linux expert or a non-programmer can do to help I would be 
glad to give something back.
Oh yeah and i'm new to newsgroups as well so if post something thats not 
kosher please forgive me as it is unintentional.
