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.

Besides, on a computer that old Firefox is going to run like a dog anyhow, even if you did have the prereqs for installing it. Firefox is well known for its use of large amounts of memory, and I don't think 32 MB is going to cut it. You're better off trying to find a minimal Web browser such as Dillo.
Thanks everybody for the posts... as you might have guess I'm a newbie to linux so here it goes... I tried to compile/install gtk2 but my box complained about the lack of a zillion dependences, tried to compile those dependences but again complained about the lack of more dependences, so I got lost... I know my test computer is maybe too old for firefox, but, with the newest version of damn small linux firefox run acceptable, so I thought I could also expect a better perfomance on an older redhat distro, so, I'm still interested in installing and testing it on rh6x so could anybody tell me where can I get the rpms or how to do it?
Thanks in advance...
P.S. Can't use dillo 'cos I need frame support, can't use dsl 'cos the OS is to heavy for 32 MB, maybe you can recommend something more light....
