Guys, guys, calm down.
arios2mx, I don't think alienthrylos was trying to put you down, or devalue your achievement. I understand your frustration with things, as I'm frustrated by my continuing failure to get 3d working on my computer (though, switching to Mandrake 9.1. appears to be a solution). And, I didn't pay anything for my OS (other than cd blanks).
Linux nowdays often seems to work pretty well out of the box, but if it doesn't, then things can get very complicated very fast. However, if you cruise around various bulletin boards, you can see that the same applies to other operating systems as well.
Life would be perfect if it wasn't for thisone small glitch....
