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'm running Fedora Core 2 on my HP ze4805us laptop with wine 20040716, I can get just about everything to run properly except I'm having a hard time getting Half-Life to run right. I can get it to come up to the main menu, but when I select new game, it freezes up on me. I have to Ctrl-C out of it.
Is there a secret to getting this to run right? Would WineX work better than wine for this game? If so, do I have to uninstall wine before installing WineX?
Make sure that on Half-Life's menu, you've your display set to OpenGL, ratter then DirectX or Software rendering. Although, I don't like Half-Life, it does, works perfectly for me with WineX/Cedega, and so does Blue-Shift with the High Resolution Pack.
I highly recommend you getting WineX. And no, you don't need to remove wine to use winex, they use different folders (wine uses .wine and WineX uses .transgaming_drive, for instance). But that is for the WineX "paid" version. I've heard that the CVS version really does, overwrites wine. Somebody here may confirm this....
Thanks Megaman! That helped. Now when I go start the game it allows me to select a new game and attempts to start the game. But when it starts to go through it's little train ride, it just acts like it's stuck on the track, bounces forward and backward, and that's it.
Going to try WineX see if that works any better, but I can't remember where to get the free version just to test it before I purchase it. I remember getting it before, but can't remember how I did it.
