Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I get pop ups sometimes even tho i don't have Internet Explorer up. Do you know where pop ups are stored? I've checked the RUN key in the registry (XP) and there is nothing there that is run to start a weird program (like spyware or anything of the sort) any ideas? I have a popup stopper but I thought I would nip this one in the bud and delete it from my hard drive...

it doesnt sound like the adds are from the net so mozilla wont stop them will it?
If he's getting pop up ad's only when IE is open, then well, its only affecting IE as he most likely has cookies, etc downloaded to cause them to pop up. If he is getting ads without anything open, well, he needs to run adaware to rid of them.
But if you really hate annoying unwanted pop-ups when browsing, use Mozilla. It also has tabbed browsing which is nice, so you don't have a million IE windows open when working in Windows...
