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.

For Some People This might be lame but for me its has become a headache. I use Red Hat Linux 9. i have this problem regarding amsn. i have amsn version 9.0 (the lastest one) .Guys I am using internet on a LAN. (cable internet as they call it here). Now the administrator used to have UNIX enabled proxy serverin the starting days of this sevice and in those days i used to connect amsn using (HTTP post on port 80) easily. But then he had problem maintaining the system so he shifted to WINDOWS server stuff and as far as i know he uses WINSOCKS now.
Now the Problem is this before this i used to connect msn 6.1 on windows without and proxy. Now i connect msn 6.1 windows on address 192.168.0.1 and port 1080. when i do the similar thing here on linux it does not work at all :S:S:S
i have these two problems which i am not able to figure out wht to do.
1. when i try to download TLS it says stuff like "token error"
when i disable the SSL thing and then provide the address and port as i use to do in windows it doesnot connect :S:S:S
One More thing i dont know if its important and worth mentioning or not still i think i shud tell ya guys.
I downloaded TLS on my machine in the earlier days when i had no porblem connecting amsn. (but that was as root user and now i want it to download it as a normal user so i am having problems :S:S) so when i use address 192.168.0.1 on port 80 and enable this SSL option which is in the connection TAB in tools of amsn. I sme how did conenct but it last for some time and i get disconnected :S:S:S:S
