    Thanks for the "Welcome"

    I am a new Ubuntu Linux user and, of course, have many questions. Thank you for the invitation to be a part of the Ubuntu community and I hope that my questions won't seem too newbe.

    Welcome to forums, and to Ubuntu

    Don't be afraid of asking stupid questions. If you provide enough information about your problem you'll get answers no matter what you're asking.. But it's also worth using the forum's search, as many problems have already been solved. Also, there's a nice Ubuntu 5.10 Starter Guide in gnome's help (in System/Help), it's really worth a look.

    Not at all, easy questions are easier for us to answer and make us feel smart for answering one more question

    The first question would be, is there a good beginning online tutorial that walks you through the basics of linux commands and the overall philosophy of Debian linux?

    Re: Thanks for the "Welcome"

    I need some further information.

    I need information on how to obtain or create a single boot floppy to
    boot a single local network PC, (without a hard drive), into an B-Badger
    5.10 Ubuntu network server.

    Thanks

    Hi dfj,

    I haven't tried it, but maybe this will give you a hint (or two)?

    Preparing Files for TFTP Net Booting from debian.org.

    You can post your experiences and then, maybe, we will have a how-to for later use?
