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.

Inspired by some other thread(s), I thought we could post our first post/question here on LQ. The following was my first post/question here:
I am completely new to Linux (2 weeks) and don't know what to do to play mp3 files.
I have Fedora Core 4 (64bit)
The problem is I don't have access to the internet at home, so I have
to download things at work.
The other thing is how can Linux recognise and use my USB US-122 Tascam Audio/Midi controller?
It was 10th November 2005. By the way, I still have some problems with the Tascam I mentioned then
My first handle on LQ was m0rl0ck but after some time away, i no longer remembered the account info when i wanted to come back. But my first post in my old incarnation was from 02, recommending Afterstep of all things to someone with a 266mhz processor
I have been using firefox .8 until one day the home page said I should install the latest version 0.10.1. Tryed to download & install..
It was missing libgtk-x184.108.40.206.so I found somewhere this file "gtk220.127.116.11-i386.rpm" which contains libgtk-x11.2.0.so, but it needed this and it needed that. Help!!
I have an old pentium 2 with redhat 7.2 the kernel version is 2.4.7-10
thanks in advance
Mine was a help request on running a Windows game on Winex (not sure if it still exists):
Hi all. I installed Clive Barker's Undying using winex 3.2-1. All the installation process went fine, but when I try to run it I see the first intro screen and then a error message that says: "Assertion failed: GetClassInfoExa( NULL, TCHAR_TO_ANSI(WinBaseClass), Cls ) [File:Inc\Window.h] [Line: 1446]
Historia: WControl::RegisterWindowsClass <- InitWindowing".
I tried changing the window mode parameters and the Windows version on the Transgaming config file but I still get the same error message. Can any one help me?? Have someone received the same message?? Thanks in advance.
Being a newbie in the forum by that time I didn't even know there was an intro section, so I have no intro on LQ. (BTW watching my post history, I just realized I double posted it, as many newbies do ).
