Welcome to Dan Miner's Home Page

Please be patient. I am trying to find a balance of useful information and software while promoting my activities.

Short Story
I have been studying and using Linux since version 0.12 which was around 1991; therefore, I am Linux junkie.

In 1983, my computer journey began with a friend's Commodore 64 and my school's TRS-80 model III. I finally got a C64 and fell in love with programming and learned all I could find.

In college (Computer Science, of course), I met mainframes and UNIX systems. I liked the mainframes better at first since our BSD-like crap did not work. However, I found Linux when searching for a multitasking DOS. My life has never been the same since...

Contacting Me


I have decided to hang my sign out as a Linux Consultant and see how well business does. An overview of my Linux experience:
  • 6 years of Linux usage and programming.
  • Personally installed Linux on dozens of machines.
  • Employed as technical support for Linux covering:
    • General Installation development
    • Hardware detection and setup problems
    • Network setup (Ethernet and PPP)
    • X Windows configuration (hardware and software)
    • Kernel configuration
    • Terminals
    • Red Hat (1.x - 4.x) and Slackware
    • and more...
I am confident that I can solve any Linux-related problems.

I am still trying to decided what links and information I wish to provide without being terribly redundant with other pages.

Red Hat Software

One of the best distributions in my opinion. The latest version is 4.1.
