Re: is it piracy??

     Dear Manish my name is Rakesh and as far as i think and have discussed
with teachers and friends there is no restriction on making and distributing
copies of free software unless it has been specifically mentioned in the
license agreement.

I live in Sarita Vihar (south delhi) , whats u'r location. Am 21 yrs old and
have just started out with linux.
I have recently installed Red Hat 6.0. I was trying to create a second user
apart from the root. But even after having successfully creating the second
user, linux keeps giving me a warning message "Please create a new user as
the root will not stop u from corrupting u'r system...." whenever i login as
root. Can u help me to get rid of this warning message.

By the way what version and distribution of linux are u running.

Mail me at: dhawanrags@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
