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.

Installing a rpm.....hell I am trying to install gaim and don't even know how to do that....its a simple rpm but everything I read to tell me how to install it dont work......any help would be much appreciated!
Distribution: Gentoo 2004.2, Slackware 10, Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server
I would get the .tar file instead... The code to install a tar file is
tar zxvf "filename here" "directory"
It will untar (unzip) the files to that directory and then there should be an install or readme file... Hope I helped
I will try that....right now I am working on setting up virtual machine up on my windows machine so that I can install redhat on it withing a virtual machine for testing......once thats done I will try this and let you all know!
