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.

Originally posted by tbalboni in the sources.list the adresses were commented out so I uncommented 1 and apt started working. BUT whenever I use it the program itself doesn't work
I used apt-get install frozen-bubble
it went d/l'd and supposedlly installed but it wouldn't run
with a whereis frozen-bubble I got back /usr/games/frozen-bubble so it's there but won't run.
I don't know maybee I'll just pay for cnr.
distro lindows 4.5 le
Lindows is an awesome dist and sports the best interface to installing applications (CNR).
I really think CNR is essential when running Lindows, in order to get the right feeling.
I suggest you have a look at ChoicePC.com, where you can by a lifetime license to all releases of Lindows ever being made plus CNR for the rest of your life for... all for $100!
After having used almost every major distro since I started with linux '98, I signed up with ChoicePC less than two months ago and I'm REALLY pleased with lindows so far.
Btw the next Lindows (due later this spring) is gonna completely rock!
apt-get, kpackage, and synaptic all work great on my Lindows system, too.
Lindows.com would like you to use CNR that is true. Its easy to install, reinstall and uninstall software and it works out the software dependancy issues. But not every program a person may want is in the CNR Library. Thus the need for a functioning alternative like apt-get.
To use Apt-Get properly with Lindows you have to change a section of the apt-get information. Lindows changed the destination to stop you from going around their CNR, but its easy to change. Do this from console:
That will change where apt-get looks. Just update and upgrade and then you can do a apt-cache search (item) to find what you want or download synaptic (which I haven't yet so I dont know how fully it works) for the GUI interface.
i am using lindows os 4.5 until i can get my modem to work with suse, first thing i did was type apt-get upgrade, it downloaded a bunch of stuff (i dont know what) then it seems to work fine, i type apt-get install icewm and it is downloading it now from ftp.us.debian.org
