    Just wanted to do this and let people try it out. A series of problems for you to provide a solution to. First I will give a problem and you try and find the solution. You have to provide "source" to your problem. For example:

    You present a problem and somebody else will provide the solution. The closest answer to the solution wins. But you need to provide the answer to the problem and why that would be the closest answer.

    You do not have to know the answers to the problems you present just know that they can be solved by a human being and give the source of the closest solution you find for the problem you presented...............lol.

    Ok here is mine. I start out simple

    Q: You want to have Linux mount a drive or partition automatically at boot time, what configuration file do you edit to achieve this. Hint: Dont stab yourself

    You can present questions before any other ones are answered. Its in no particular order. Btw, you may use any resources............google, etc. We will keep score by the number of questions you provide correct solutions for. And please feel free to add additional rules
