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.

It takes a while to learn, but Gimp is actually a pretty decent program. Just don't expect the same degree of seamlessness as with a $1000 commercial application. And if you want to edit high resolution images, check out this site:
The Gimp is a good as Photoshop. In fact, any paint program that support layers does the job fine. I am used to use Photoshop to make textures to my games(hobby). I've had no problems with Gimp, since I made my Winslow - Linux transition and I'm pretty happy with it .
it allows u to run windows within linux and i use it mainly for adobe photoshop and illustrator, both which work amazingly well within vmware (it is around 400 bucks though, so if u have photoshop then i'm sure you're willing to dish out the cash for vmware, it works extremely well)
but the only problem is that u need to have a windows installer cd and xp is not a good choice if you've already used it and activated your product: go with something like windows 98; it's small, efficient, and gets the job done
I see That sounds cool. Sorry for my ignorance. I've just thought it was a wine like paid emulator (I know, wine is NOT an emulator, but does exactly the same... potato, potata...lol) Thanks for the tip contrasutra
