I hunk hmight have meant MAC as in Macintosh. But I'm not sure, those italics are throwing me off...

I don't mind your italic writing, but I still don't know (and fashizzle neither ,I think at least) if you meant MAC as in:
1) Media Access Control address (wiki link)
or
2)Mac OS X (wiki link)
Here most people say MAC when they mean 1 and Mac OS X (or just OS X for short) when they mean 2

Actually mate I got pulled another direction. I've been persuaded to work my way into Linux.
There's supposed to be a lot of money for a Linux network security man for some businesses. As the person told me "Be smart enough with windows to cause -damage-, be smart enough in Linus to cause -devastation-"
So hell, I'm actually going to try and build my own scratch version of Linux, via "Build my Linux' search in Google for a kernel.

Don't try building your own yet. Try installing arch Linux and getting it working and configured properly then go from there.

VirtualBox is nice but personally I enjoy the challenge of rendering the whole computer useless until you fix it ;)
ie. Format and fresh install.
