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.

OK, this is probably real simple and probably I'm being thick(er than usual), but does anyone have any idea why I don't see the graphics when trying to access the UK Amazon site (I can see them with accessing Amazon.com)?
I'm using either :-
Ubuntu (Warty) with Firefox or Mozilla
SuSE 9.2 with Firefox or Konqueror.
My ISP is BT Yahoo! Broadband.
I can't see the icons at the top of the page (you know the ones for Books, DVD and the other departents), or the ones for Wishlist or Adding to my basket... It makes it very hard to use the site.
At work, using Windows I can see them fine, it's just at home where I've moved to total Linux I can't see them.
Has anyone else had this problem? anyone found an answer? anyone have a clue what could be the problem? anyone want to take a wild guess?
Do you have AdBlock installed in Firefox, or have you blocked certain Amazon.co.uk images in the past? If so, check that none of the strings you are blocking contain 'Amazon' in, as that may be your problem?
No, no AdBlock installed, I've never tinkered with the browsers much. In fact the machine with Suse 9.2 was FTP installed just over a week ago and has only been used lightly as it's an old machine I use for trying new Distros on. The Ubuntu I've had installed on the other PC since shortly after 4.10 was announced.
I was wondering if there was anything my ISP might be doing to cause problems with images like them.
