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.

Have reinstalled a cd program, can now play audio cd's..
I still cannot configure my soundcard, but it seems to work...i think this was after i put
"options sb io=0x220 irq=6 dma=2 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330"
will not being able to configure soundcard have a detrimental effect?...(I want to set this box up as an audio box...)
Can now halt...thx.
can use files with spaces exept with & in them.
Still have to use control centre to connect to web...is this normal?
any info on GTK welcomed.(is dependancies for software i try to install)
You should be able to connect to the web without control center. Have you configured your network yet? What are you doing in control center that allows you to connect to the web?
Also, I think I gave you the wrong information about the soundblaster options and I apologize for that. Last night I checked my modules.conf file and it doesn't have the options in it. The options are in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file. I uncommented the line that says:
In mandrake control:
-network & internet
gives an internet access bar...
status:not connected (connect?)
When i click on (connect?)i get the network monitoring window...in says it is trying to connect, then opens another window saying :
the system doesn't appear to be connected to the internet.
Try to reconfigure your system
so, it works, but not quite right!
i configured my internet connection on installation.
gtk is a graphical tool in linux. Many apps (alot of gnome apps especially) use it to draw their graphical front ends. You do need it installed to run those apps in their gui form. gtk stands for Graphical Took Kit, if that helps any.
And as for kppp, go to your K menu --- Run --- And type kppp if nothing comes up, then open up a terminal, and as root type:
It should be installed on your system already. Go to that link I provided and it will walk you right through everything. It's very well written and very simple. You should have no problems. If you do, let us know.
