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 downloaded proxytunnel, but the packaging isn't very intuitive... there's no make file, no config file... I have no idea how to install it.
I was just hoping that SSH would go through a proxy if the proxy was set in an environment variable. A couple of my linux gurus here confer that it should work, I just wanted to be sure the syntax of the export command was correct.
If anyone has any pointers on how to install proxytunnel in FC3/4, let me know!
sounds like you are missing gcc (and probably some other development/libraries)
rpm -qa | grep gcc
on one of my boxes gcc-3.4.2-6.fc3 provides /usr/bin/gcc (version may be different for you)
'make install' is failing because 'make' did not successfully build the proxytunnel binary so that's where the "cannot stat 'proxytunnel'" message is coming from
if you want i can email you the binary, should work for you. i have copied it from one of my other boxes to a third box and had it work. otherwise you will need to track down the necessary packages to get it to build
what i did was extract the contents, changed into the directory, ran make, then tar'd the file up again including the binary, you should be able to run 'make install' and it will install the binary as well as the man pages
