Looking for a community/forum where I can learn more about networking, code, security, and OS-independent CS topics

I'm looking for a forum where I can ask questions about networking, security, coding, operating systems, web design, etc. There are many of these out there, but I'd like to find a single community which covers all these topics more or less equally (so it isn't a Linux forum with a small section on BSD, or a coding forum with a small section on networking). I'd like it to be the sort of forum where users stay around for several years as they learn and contribute at different levels, with high literacy and education-to-spam levels. Could I have your recommendations please?

OSX or Linux/BSD Laptop?

My laptop is basically toast. I guess I need a new laptop. I was heading toward an iBook/Powerbook, but it suddenly occured to me that a Thinkpad with Linux or BSD might be good. Whatchall think?

Linux/BSD geeks, I need your help. I've got 60Gb of unused HDD space on one of my drives, and I want to install a variant of Linux/BSD on it (I need to upskill, and I want to start developing applications for X11). But I've got a problem: My drives are on an IDE RAID controller which none of the distros I've tried recognise. [more inside]
