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.

After using Firefox for a while (ver 1.5 and now 18.104.22.168), when downloading files of any type (.rpm .exe .iso etc), the download manager adds .exe to the downloaded filename, eg: filename.rpm becomes filename.rpm.exe. Anyone know why, and how to stop it?

Never heard of that one. Googled a bit with no luck. I would contact the firefox developement team. I would they may have run into it or at least think it may be a security bug that needs resolved. They did recommend going to 2.0.08 about 2 weeks ago do to security risk. Current 126.96.36.199 I believe. First i would remove the old version then install the new.
Before upgrading do this.
Close any firefox windows.
Rename .mozilla in your home directory.
Then open a clean firefox and try downloading. It may be from some conrupt configurations in your own configs.
Thankyou Brian1 and bob dobbs - I tried Google, but obviously asked the wrong questions. I've had the problem on non ntfs systems, and when downloading to FAT32 and ext3, so it will be good when the bug is fixed. It's particularly annoying when downloading a pile of dependancies.
