Re: [suse-security] a little service question
Dear Dustin,
in my opinion Mr. Bien has given the right (short and friendly - not harsh)
answer.
Your questions are very fundamental.
Of course security related but nothing especially for this list.
Some weeks ago I was at the same point like you - questions, questions,
questions.
But there are many very helpful Howtos outside - but you must spend a
little time on it.
Good luck.
Frank
