We try to answer all questions, but you are also encouraged to look for the info
yourself. Here are a few places to start with :
have a general question about a common feature of linux ?
( on SuSE look at /usr/doc/howto - I'm not sure about RedHat )
or online at the "Linux Documentation Project" www.linuxdoc.org
of course "man" pages are always very useful ( and following the "See Also"
section can be quite fruitful )
looking for a file ?
try "locate <string>" where string is all or a part of the file name
want to know which rpm a file belongs to ?
try "rpm -qf <the-file-name>"
and the READMEs in most packages are interesting
