A little OT, but I thought Linux Server Hacks is a great, great purchase. Yes, much if not all of the info is available on the web, but often quite fragmented.Originally Posted by gnomad
I think what is nice about getting the books is the newbie such as me in this hobby, gets the info at the starting point instead of getting a frontend and not having the mother board yet sort of thing, (if that makes sense) I did order geek my ride and intend to order car pc hacks. My luck with searching comes back with with everything except what I was looking for so I am not into searching but I try still.

No one's going to hold your hand and tell you how to build your project. This is a forum- you make it sound like a support line for a product that's been purchased. Most of us started from a similar spot that you're in. And so, you will make your own decisions on the components you purchase and how you choose to put them together.
I'd say the main reason people get annoyed with noobs is for thread-crapping. Changing the topic and discussing things that have been covered time and time again merely water-down the board and make things more difficult to find.
