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.

I have a box that Started its life as a RH 7.2 box then was upgraded to 7.3 now finally upgraded to 8.0. For the most part life has be fine. But I have experienced a couple of problems that I hope I'm not the only one to experience.
The first is between the upgrade of 7.3 and 8.0, I converted and installed around 200 Mac Type1 fonts. They worked fine, once I got them into my font path. The app I want to use them in is GIMP. After the upgrade to 8.0 I did not see the fonts in GIMP (or other apps). I have been able to get load the fonts into OpenOffice.org, but that uses a separate font mechanism (doesn't it?). I found notes on using chkfontpath --list to list the font directories that xfs is using. This is where I hit my second problem - when I su to root, my path does not include /sbin or /usr/sbin! I can work around the path problem - once I find where the executable I want to run lives.
So, in a nutshell:[list=1][*]Fonts have disappeared from apps - chkfontpath --list shows the correct paths to the fonts[*]When I su to root - my path does not include /sbin or /usr/sbin[/list=1]
Any suggestions? Are there any config files anyone wants to see?
