I am proposing a meet on 6th Jan, and also proposing an agenda
(if Sameer agrees to it): Using SGML to generate Documents, and
converting SGML/XML to other popular formats like, ps, rtf, pdf
etc. I have been using LaTeX for this task and highly satisfied,
and would also love to learn the SGML tools to do the same. It is
necessary that the hackers on the list should learn the power of
these time tested tools, and should be introduced to them sooner
Should we decide Sameer! on your introduction/tutorial to
structured documentation using SGML?

There's a learning curve. When I started out, I was averse to the command line too. But as I began discovering commands for things that went click-click, I found myself using the command line more and more.
The reason is simple - it's easier to issue a command than fire up a GUI, sift thru the tabs and buttons et al.
Say, you want to add a user to a new group. How'd you do it in GUI? Fire up Linuxconf, expand the trees till you reach the users area (I've forgotten what Linuxconf looked like, so it's a somewhat inexact reproduction), click on that user and then in his/her property sheet, specify the group somewhere. That done, you click the "Activate" button and then "Quit" hoping that things went fine. Same thing on the command line:
# usermod -G <group>[, ...] <user>
There's a command - apropos - that searches for the supplied keywords in short descriptions of all the entries in man pages. So, if you're looking for disk management commands, you can do:
$ apropos disk
and get a list of commands that have the word "disk" in their descriptions.
I don't say that GUI is bad. The user should figure out when to use what tool. As a rule of thumb, use a GUI tool when you are going to use a majority of the features it offers. So I may use LinuxConf when I get down to configuring my system after a fresh install. But not for the occasional tweaks and mods.

I have the same problems stated here. But after went to the website you pointed
to and download bott.img file. I was not able to make floppy out of it. I found
out boot.img listed on that site is way over 1.44MB. I wonder if I did
something wrong? Please advice.

Ok, found the solution. The Adaptec AIC7xxx SCSI bus timeout on 440GX
motherboards was a known bug and it has been patched. The boot image of
redhat7.1 has been fixed. You can find them here -
