Oh great and magnanimous waidersrv, I invoke your powers, I sacrifice this 3M High Density 1.44MB floppy loaded with Lucent proprietary GDMO information model code, That you, oh great waidersrv will show the way and exorcise the evil WINDOWS from our home-computing device, I scribble on the label with luminous orange highlighter and while incanting your glorious title I inscribe your name 14 times, waidersrv, waidersrv, waidersrv waidersrv, waidersrv waidersrv waidersrv, waidersrv, waidersrv, waidersrv waidersrv, waidersrv waidersrv waidersrv, May you be generous in your omnipotence and deign to answer our pitiful inquiries into disk partitioning and the installation and configuration of Linux, I flip the read-write tab back and forth and set it to read only to symbolise the one true source of all informaition - the waidersrv, We implore of you, oh great one, give us advice on the partitioning of our drives, so that E: may be reborn as E: and F:, or maybe that the whole of our 3.3G hard-drive may be reborn without losing the present C: partition on which resides the evil Microsoft software. I lever off the slidy-thing with my bare thumb and expose the magnetic store of knowledge, it gives with a satisfying click as it detaches. We pray that to OS Linux will be happy to reside on two seperate partitions and that it will forgive the users for preserving the Microsoft evil, periodic sacrifices will be offered for this sacrelige to relieve the plagues of corrupted memory and hard-disk failure. I bend the metal slidy-thing backwards and in half, it tears and lies there twisted and contorted. We shall treat old Microsoft software with the same contempt, not de-installing, but physically deleting from the hard-drive and over-writing using the GNU standard licencing agreement. I scratch the exposed magnetic floppy material with this pen writing "watashi wa sakana desu" in arcane nihongo figures, I rotate the disc an imperfect 90 degrees and inscribe the evil of this universe, Microsoft :-E, I rotate another 90 and inscribe the saviour Linus, another 90 and the fountain of the waidersrv is invoked. Through the revolutions of our CD-ROM may the installation of Linux from the InfoMagic Linux Developers Resource (Red Hat 5.0, Kernel source 2.0.33 and 2.1.79, SuSE 5.1, Linux archives, GNU archive, Slackware 3.4, Metro-X 4.1, XFree86 3.3.1, Apache WWW for Linux 1.2.5, Lesstif for Linux 0.82, Complete on-line docs & HOWTO's AND Installation and Networking guide) be unhindered, I IMPLORE thee oh great waidersrv! I take a blue pen and insert it, cracking the casing of the floppy in two, corrupting the magnetic surface, I pull mightily with my hands and the floppy cracks lying bare and exposed before me, the spring and read-write tab fall loose to be discarded. I place them with the bent slidy-thing on the 6-CD Linux set. Taking the empty shell I inscribe invocations to the waidersrv on the protecting material and tear the material apart in symbolic emulation of corrupted run-time memory paging. I take this half of the plastic shell and perform the origami bird-base folds that peace shall reign on hard-drive, in memory and with various IO devices. We implore thee that the interface of Linux to modems and ports will become clear to us. Finally, I take the holy magnetic disk itself, with this stapler I puncture and dent the surface, I render the information completely corrupt, it is imperfect, and deserves to be desecrated. This I sacrifice to you oh great waidersrv, to your depthless fountain of magnet^H^Himonious power.
