Just wanted to say hello to everyone and that I'm new to this site and new to Fedora. I'm a recent convert to Linux Revolution and I haven't turned back. I've been installing/deinstalling distro's on my Alienware Laptop and have decided to stick w/ Fedora. So, warning of warnings, this is my intro, pls be kind! :)

Yeah, I was greedy and stupid, I've learned my lesson on that one, for now on its cheap, but ya see I'm military, did a TDY to a "danger zone" area, received $$$$$ for my tour and I thought what the heck? :)
But I've learned to go through Dell for now on for most of my comp needs, not b/c I like Dell but b/c they are military friendly, school (college) friendly and I get discounts... yippee... :)
