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 can't login to command prompt redhat as a regular user. The screen flickers for a millasecond and then goes back to the login screen; there's output, but it comes out too quickly, I can't read it. I can still login as root, so I sould assume it has to do with permissions or something of the sort, and created another user to try; that didn't work. This was all after a failed attempt of installing apt and mplayer. Any idea's?
Look at the logfiles to see what's actually going
on ... I don't think Mplayer would mess with
permissions, and I've never used apt (and I
don't use any other package managers, either,
for that matter).
