I just wrote some (senseless) stuff. I didn't understand the question so you
shouldn't understand the answer ;-)
In fact I wrote "So this must be some important guy (italian I assume)"

Thanx for teaching me about that.

That might be funny, too. ;-)
No I mean something like a support-collector.
User has Problem -> User type "get_help" -> A Mask opens, were user can
enter description of the Problem -> get_help-script sends this and the
collected system-information to someone who might help our poor user.
This was what I meant, but this would be only possible for a commercial
product as you need many people who will answer all the questions. :-)
