Here's one more semi-newbie to join the forum. Installed Kubuntu partly yesterday (had KDE running after that), continued today and there's still something to be done.
I have used Linux for some years, but this is the first time I am installing one myself - and I intend to administer it myself, too. Although it seems hard to keep my husbands hands off it... He's been the admin this far (and I gladly let him do it for the Slackware on the other partition in the future, too). Well, have to admit that some help has been useful, as the installation didn't go the usual way, but I won't go into that right now. I'm no computer expert, though I seem to know more than most my colleagues and can handle Windows relatively well. But still, how will I learn if he solves half of all the problems for me?
Anyway, I'm happy to be here. I think you'll hear of me later on...
