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.

Well it would appear to be a browser problem, stupid Sony imagestation
Anyway, if you have it, konqueror appears to load it fine, while Galeon, and it's weak little father, Mozilla would seem unable to load the larger one.
Anyway, this is probably going to be true with any screenshots I post, so I appologize for the "inconvenience" and such. I have sent an email before, but I will do it again, and again, until they stop loving MS so much.
Cool, glad it worked. I really like it up here, I live on an island and the water isn't 20 yards from my backyard, so it's very nice. But I will be leaving in about a year, so I am getting TONS-O-PICS before then.
Oh and if you are bored, and want to d/l or see some more of the pics I took, you can cruise over to my ftp and go into the "deception" folder. The place is called Deception Pass.

Yeah, I haed just gotten this PNY Compact Flash USB thing to work so my camera was back in action for the first time really since I evicted Bill from my house. I'd been wanting to post the "original screen" shot for a while. One's the desktop, the other is a screen full of "verbose debugging" dmesg of USB mass storage info on a laptop. Offhand, the el cheapo PNY doesn't work with 2.4.18, but does with 2.4.19!
hehhe yeah I know man, it's kindda funny to see that inthere, is like...Windows something for Linux??, hahah, that's got to be helariuos!
I used to use a ICQ Java applet officially distributed by the ICQ website, but then after I got Gaim, that's past history...eventhough on that java you could actually transfer files and have direct connection chats and other things which Gaim has not added I think to the new versions yet...same with file transfer for AIM and for MSN. They need to add those...it's a pain without it.
It's AMSN and it works great. It's very funny - the other day talking to some of the UK's top .NET developers about Linux (which of course they don't like), one of them said "Yeah, but there's even a .NET implementation for Linux that some people are developing ... " as if the Linux community adds credibility to the open network object model. "Yes, that's right" I said, "that's why I have Windows Messenger for Linux ... "
There faces kind of dropped when I said that.
