Dear Group Members ,
I thanks to all of you ppl for replying me back , and i also welcome all the feedbacks . I have never joined a mailing list , this is a first one i ever joined so my idea was that if we have group of ppl who know much much more better than me , so there shouldnt be any hesitation on my side to ask such a question .
To the ppl who say "learn on your own ": -
I sincerely thank all of you ppl for making me remember this old formula which works . I agree to it since some timeback even i was a tutor (Mathematics) . I am a strong believer of "God helps who help themselves" . However there is one more important fact that we have to accept is thatone cannot move ahead unless given the right direction and advice from the ppl who have been through the same process .
Friends you ppl have been very encouraging in your response to my question . I thank all of you for providing me the right resources and the right advice .
Thanking all of you for all your responses , i accept and take it positvely and would not mind asking any such questions in future since this is the way we learn , isn't it (look smiley ) :- ) ?
Use Yahoo! to plan a weekend, have fun online & more. Check it out!

they pretend to have such an architecture in place. On friday a
bank had to inaugurate two branches down south.
Internet ex plodder would not connect to the central server,
although routes and ports were absolutely fine. so check the
router, check the nics, call up regional hub at 0230 hrs.
reinstall win2k. Finally re-reinstall win2k on about 25 machines
with a cd from another branch everything works. The cd that came
from the software repository has the latest patches and was
supposed to be installed on all machines but was delayed for
some reason. U can imagine the catastrophe avoided by shear luck.

But this is a IT managment issue. Standardize the hardware first.
Next standardize the distro. And have tight SLAs. Without these
even FLOSS cannot generate a golden bullet. But IMO a regional
repository is extremely useful in driving down costs.
The bottom line is that M$ will eventually come down to a capital
cost on par with FLOSS so start focussing now on the things that
they simply cannot compete against.

The above courses have very little to do with programming for anything,
let alone the linux kernel. They're aligned towards system administration.
Google to understand the various "flavours" of programming.

Reading books on systems, oses and programming is one method. Other
methods could be story listening and pavlovian conditioning. The last
method is in wide spread use as it produces code of a unique
quality known as sphagetti. Most "programmers" know this learning and
programming environment as Visual xyz, running under an os known as
windows. Rumours say windows and associated apps was written by
microserfs conditioned to click icons at a furious pace, which by magic
produces sphagetti code.
> necessary C/C++ in depth to learn such Linux subjects .
One other method, in addition to the first, used widely in writing
libre software is reading the source code. Both methods are highily
recommended. Besides producing code of a very high quality, it is known
to produce immunity to pavlovian conditioning and actually winds up
teaching the reader to write code.
