'please don't send me to a link'? that narrows it down a bit, doesn't it?

what if all *your* links have been oops because you suck at searching, but all our links kick ass and are easy because we spend our lives on the net looking for geeky tutorials? hmm? THEN would you go to one of our links, hMm? would you? hmm? would you?

To be honest I don't really know what they mean by that sentence. There is no such thing as "SU" in Linux. There is a command "su" (lower case) which I believe originally stood for "substitute user" although many people today (including me) refer to it as "switch user". Some people believe it is short for "super user" because it allows you to become the all powerful "root" user but that just doesn't make any sense, there should be some action in a command name (switch or substitute fill that bill).

Now the line I quoted says "you must be logged into the root". That's like saying "you must be logged into the Administrator" in NT/2K/etc. WTH is that supposed to mean? Now if they said "you must be logged in as root" then it would make sense. Now the rest of the sentence "instead of the SU (shared user)" just plain baffles me.

The only thing I can figure is that they meant to say "You must log in as root rather than switching to root using the 'su' command", but that isn't even true. There is no reason for you to log in as root so I just don't get it. That's just one of several things that are just plain wrong with the page. But I digress, I'm certainly not qualified to criticize others on grammar, although this is more a technical competency issue IMHO.

well i tried to use 'auto' in fstab by copying the line from my floppy drive. i think the line looked like:

/dev/sda4 /mnt/zip auto defaults,users,exec,noauto 0 0

and basically it didn't work, for some reason. i assumed that it was something to do with the device not supporting 'auto' as a type or perhaps 'hfs' was not one of the filesystems checked for if 'auto' is specified. whatever i was just guessing, anyway, i have not tried that autofs thing, as i don't like automounters, however if i have it set to 5 seconds, maybe that will be good enough to be transparent. maybe i could put it down to 1 or 2 seconds...
