That is the real problem with BOFH. There is real need to fire such
Admins, who refuse to help users. Now, a day customers are boss, but
such admin live in the era of Kings.
Is there any pubic server, where one can have his account and have all

Can't you have a PC in your dept., or office where you can install
Linux and admin yourself, although it is time consuming. Or is it
possible to install in your personal directory?
