You see the thing is I have learned a lot from just checking out dirs and
looking at files but I have also learned you don't just start using mount
commands on unknown file-system I was trying to get some help before I
jumped into it and started trying things out so I didn't totally FUBAR my
windows drive or OpenBSD system.

This is how I learned how to use stuff: process of elimination, I think I
came to this approach from years of playing videogames :-)
"Joe Blow" mentioned in a private email to me he is 14, which accounts for
some of his attitude, and I hope he has been shamed enough by the replys
on this list to put a ton of work into learning about his system.
take a day off from the mailing list and cool down and realize the people
on this list are for the most part advanced users and for the most part
learned stuff the hard way. It's time to pay your dues young man.
I went on irc when I first started using Unix-y stuff about 4 years ago
and got flamed for asking "stupid/obvious questions", which idn't seem to
be obvious to me at the time. I did a ton of research on my own, then a
did a ton more. And I had a distinct disadvantage versus yourself: I was
28 at the time and I can attest I don't have the memory retention anymore
to learn as quickly. I'm now 32 and I'm still learning and while I have
made decent progress and I am far more savvy than 99% of the users out
there, on a list like this that attracts the top 99.9% I still feel like a
newbie sometimes :-).
Put your duncecap on, and start reading and exploring your system. do an
ls in every directory in your system and learn whats in it but man'ning
all the commands you can, you probably won't understand many of them but
you'll find tons of stuff you can understand and didn't know exist!
