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.

quanta has nice "project" management for a website - integrated php upload changes function.
personally i use quanta for my bigger projects and kate for smaller ones (under 20 files) just because it is so much cleaner, but the two perform very well. The one thing that they do not help with is recognizing whether a symbol/variable you use has been defined yet. then again, php is a very easy and tolerant language to begin with.
One advantage kate has over quanta is the split window view - you can view several files side-by side by splitting the window in as many combinations as you like - just like with konqueror. quanta does not include this feature, so if you need it often, consider kate.
kate does have a "project" feature, called "sessions" and you can choose to have kate prompt you on each run which session to load, so you can organize your files using this, and it works out quite well.
I use these on a daily basis so feel free to ask more
I started a web site that is now getting complex, I am now writing small BASIC programs to assist in its management, would a program like quanta help to simplify it? So far I have done everything "by hand" and the only PHP I use is the "include" statement.
VIM. Then again, VIM is usually the best editor for anything.
But if you want something more "enterprise-ey," try Geany. It's a nice IDE, but without all the extra bloat of ones like Eclipse (Hey, hey, I like Eclipse fine for some things!), so it's nice and snappy.
while I am an advocate of vim and definitely not afraid of it, I am very much at home with the KDE apps, and like I said, I use quanta for most web stuff.
Did you mean that you are converting utility programs written in BASIC to PHP for a website? for an editor in general, I like kate best, quanta for its added tools for manipulating html and other web code. other tools may add more developer-tailored functionality, such as the eclipse-based one mentioned above.
A more detailed description of the project you are working on would help us to better advise you.
