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.

This is accually the same problem I had when I switched from Mac to Windows. I downloaded Nethack (I love that game) and ran the rpm, accually I ran 2 rpms. The site said redhat may not have q installed, whatever that is so they had nethack with qt. My question is, where the heck is it? I installed because when I run the rpm again it says package already installed. I ran a search and that found nothing. Thanks in advance for any help.
The original nethack is (as far as I know,
I've never played it ;}) a console app, and
thus would have to be run in a terminal
window... but since you mentioned the QT
libraries I'd assume that you also have
a version with a graphical interface ...
It should be possible to invoke that from
a file-browser or a link you create on
your desktop or a taskbar-button...
Yeah, there is such an animal, but you would be better off just using a book like Running Linux or Linux In A Nutshell. It's really important to take on Linux on its own terms -- yeah, it's very natural to try comparing an unfamiliar thing to a familiar thing, but aside from the fact that Linux and Windoze are both operating systems, there's really not much to compare.
