Dear Maynard,

I saw a couple of your posts on C.O.L.A.
I think you are doing a great service by
answering some of the questions that are
posted to that group by error.

I have been playing around with Linux for
more than 2 or 3 years and have just come
into more time to spend with the subject.
I have been looking around for some way
to help those new to Linux.

I have looked into my local LUG group
(Houston,Tx.) but have not found that
group to be very helpful to new users.

I have looked into (gotten on mailing lists)
different projects to help develop software.
But not being a programer is a disadvantage.

I have found one group that may be helpfull
in the future:

If you are interested, check it out.

The point to this message is just to say that I
think it is a GOOD thing what you are doing.
And I may start doing the same thing.  And
that is giveing time to answering questions
in the news groups.

P.S. I tried to mail this to the from header of this post but
got a bounce.

p.s. My local news feed doesn't have comp.os.linux.help
nore does Dejanews carry it.  What's up with that?

Well I have an HP7110ep burner and I'm using EZ CD Creator v3.0 under
win98... and I know to make the install cd I have to use ISO9660 with
long file name format, but heres the problem... it won't let me make
file names with multiple periods.... ie... it want to change:


to -->


and I'm wonering if this is going to be compatible with the installer...
and if not what in hell do I do now?

Thanx for the help
