    RE: How to become a Linux system administrator
    If your goal is to learn linux then you can do it by yourself. First install Gentoo on a virual machine from minimal CD, then configure everything that just fits your needs. After that configure one of the most popular linux server applications like Samba, Bind, Apache with PHP and MySQL (ot maybe PostgreSQL or FIreBird or even better - MongoDB), any FTP server or anything like that. Also don't forget about IPTables. Forget about XServer, use only the terminal. Start learning shell scripting (bash). If you get confused about anything you can aways ask in the forums or in the IRC channels. Linux have very strong community support, so feel free to ask about the things that you dont understand. If you want to get a document that will help you on finding a job - then go to the college. Actually I engourage you to go to the college with no matter what you want, except that you dont want to go the college. There you will develop your skills in IT. You will learn a lot of cool stuff. Working with Linux is only one part of that IT speciallist should know. Its not bad to learn more. So if the distance is a problem then go to a college near you and learn Linux at home - that is the best you can do. Learn more and more!

    RE: Using a virtual terminal
    Which desktop environment are you using? if you are using Gnome (with ubuntu or other user friendly distro) - > right click on the terminal, Profiles, Profile preferences. then just play around with the tabs. there you can change font size, font style, font colour, background and much more. if you have Compiz running then you make true transparency for the background.

    RE: Moblin on AMD Desktop?
    You can recompile The Kernel and remove Intel's chipset support and add AMD's one. (think so) Is Moblin supported by Intel? so there is a sense why it does not run on AMD platform...

    RE: linux have to get a standard version
    The power of linux is its free nature. As you know that means that everybody can look and edit the code of linux. That's why there are so many distributions. They differ by many things - the way to install a program (from source or binary) installed by default apps ( desktop managers, players, and everything else), the version of the included programs (one versions are more stable than others. For example you should prefer an easy to use linux, but there will be a much more system administrations that will prefer small, optimized and FAST distributions. So as we say here "dont pee against the wind" - the administrations will get that they want. For new users there is silence agreement that they use Ubuntu linux just for starting. Ubuntu is great for home and office. If you dont like it you may try one of the other user friendly distros - mandriva, opensuse, fedora and others... so the power here is that if you dont like the idea of one linux distro - just pick up another... There is no one to tell you " there is only one linux distribution and you have to use it". you are *free* to use any dostro you want. That what linux needs now is new X system plus drivers and new compiler (gcc is not so good as msvc or intel's cc).

    RE: How to install Redhat Linux 9
    You can try to install CentOS, which is based on redhat and its all community supported. Then you can ask in #centos (freenode) for support if there is problem.

    RE: Black Window? Command Prompt?
    lol, X11 == GUI the black screen you keen on is called CLI (command line interface). when you are in CLI and type startx command you get the GUI working (if you have installed one). Linux have much advanced "command prompt" then windows. You can do almost everything from CLI - you can create and extract archive (tar, unrar, p7zip), connect to FTP servers, download files (wget), browse web sites (elinks, links, lynx), use IRC (bitchx, ircii), you can even listen audio and watch video with mplayer and special configuration for 32 bit colour console (dont know exactly how) . There is even Total commander like file manager - midnight commander (based on [url=http://google.com/search?q=ncurces]ncurces[/url]). Well, you can't use skype :cheer: But you can connect to other linux machine and type these commands on the remote host :laugh: (read more about ssh). From here go to Community tab -> Groups -> and the search for Bash group. there are nice lessons and explanations about commands. There you can ask your questions (i think so). Also for every command there is manual page and info. just type "man commandname" in the terminal or console and you will get nice and full info. There are a few sites that provide online manuals (search in google about that). Usually "commandname --h" shows short help. You can try to install Gentoo on virtual machine from Gentoo Minimal CD. Then you will learn much new things about linux. Or just read [url=http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml]this[/url] guide. good luck & have fun!

    RE: getting remote output with expect
    IF i understood your question, then you need openssh. openssh has 2 parts: server and client. On the other boxes you have to run the server (make it to run on startup) and from your PC you have to run the client like: [code]ssh root@192.168.1.10[/code] where the IP is the IP of the remote computer, and root is the account you want to login. there are great security options for openssh, look at the manual for that. good luck and i hope you know the base bash commands (otherwise look at the Bash group at the community section).

    RE: What distro is best for a webserver?
    Best distros for servers are CentOS, Debian. you can install them without graphic environment (onli CLI). Ubuntu and Fedora has server edition with graphic environment. This distributions are comming with apache/mysql/and_other_daemons. If you want to isntall apache/mysql/and_other_daemons by hand you may try gentoo. WIth this distro you can configure everything you need and to compile everything. also you can remove apache/mysql/and_other_daemons but i think its better to use the pre-configurated ones, becaouse some of them has security paches wich are not a part of the offical sources.

    RE: best linux distro for python programmers???
    Python is build-in in the most common distros, so you need only a nice editor. Geany, gedit should work fine (dunno for KDE). if you like to configure everythink by yourself choose somethink like Gentoo, Arch or etc... If you dont - there are many options: ubuntu, fedora, opensuse, mandriva, mint maybe... seems to me that this topic is for "New to linux". and Be careful when you doublepost, they can get ya... ;P
