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.

Thanks, this is exactly what I was looking for. I see the open office is right in the menu. What about the others ... do i have to download them and install them? I need help with installing. so far I have gotten nothing installed that I tried to.
Most Mandrake/Mandriva "newbie" problems can be resolved by going to Easy URPMI and following the directions to set up your sources. Instead of resorting to tarballs and "wild" rpms, just "urpmi NAMEOFPACKAGE" on the command line. Urpmi also has an easy-to-use graphical front-end called RPMdrake which is integrated into the Mandrake Control Center.
Although web sources for urpmi are not added on the installation of Mandriva Linux, they are available at EasyUrpmi or through an option in the Software Sources Manager in versions above 2005LE (10.2).
I'd use your distribution's package manager first, to see if there's a package for Kompozer in the repositories. If not, you'll need to install that deb file with dpkg I believe (it's a command line tool). I think if you need to use dpkg, then you'll have to check that you have all the dependencies for Kompozer or the installation will fail, but don't quote me on this.
Distribution: Ubuntu, SuSE10.2, LFS, Ubuntu Server (AMD64), Windows 7, Mac OSX
I use Quanta Plus and Bluefish to build static pages. You might also want to look into setting up a content management system. I build the templates in Quanta then build the sites with Drupal. I've used Drupal and Joomla, but prefer Drupal for its flexibility.
Once you have the page looking the way you want you can upload the template to your Drupal installation and then add the content. This allows you to work on pages regardless of platform through your web browser.
