Thank you very much,

but the doc's there are as outdated as my grandma - and she was put to
rest a while ago. Don't get me wrong - I like linux a lot but the doc's
suck sometimes. I had a problem one time with a cd-burner.
Now - the site you mention tells you a lot of stuff that is about:
-3 years outdated and
-totally incomprehensible

I really appreciate that the good guys of linux make an effort to
document their software and put up manuals - BUT there is a lot of
outdated stuff out there that is no help to anybody at all so pls. stop
with this RTFM - stuff.
