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 been using Open Office 641c for a while. I just recently tried to spell check a document, and it says that every single word is spelled wrong. for the language option I have it set on English (USA), the only one there is, and for the dictionary option I have it set on standard [All], also the only one there is. I don't remember ever actually using spell check and having it work after I installed it, so I don't think I screwed up the dictionary file. Does anybody know what's wrong?
OK, that's good to know. Now I have another question. When I couldn't get the OO spell checker to work, I saved the file in MS Doc format and opened it with microsoft word on a windows box. I said that no words were spelled incorrectly, even though I found some incorrect ones when reading through it (this is a 19 page paper, so there's got to be a lot of mistakes). Would this be the fault of Open Office's save format? This really boggles my mind.
did u use american or british spellchecks? what kinds of mistakes did u spot? if you have some examples, perhaps it'll be easier to tell whether it's specifically OO's problem or some other... (eg. is it British English or American English spell checking that you use vs what you expect.). or was it something more blatant than the use of 'z' vs 's' in words like 'socializing' vs 'socialising'...
It wasn't really language specific.... EVERY word was spelled wrong in open office, and no words were spelled wrong in MS Word (even though there really were words spelled wrong that are not right in british or american english)..
ok i think every word was considered as spelled incorrectly in OO because there are currently very few words in the spellcheck and since words not in the spellchecker, they'd be considered misspelled. as for the problem with MS Office, it's probably an incompatibility issue... it'll probably be solved in later releases of OO...
try StarOffice if you want to use linux... compatilbiility issues are less between StarOffice and MS...
