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.

Originally posted by Mara Komakino, it's a Linux-Newbie forum. It means that someone here may not know what's a package and how to install it. Please answer questions next time. Thanks.
Sorry, what did I type that looked like "give me a lecture on berating people who can't read". It may be a linux newbie forum but when the answer is in the question there's more of an issue than just being a newbie. Error messages are there for a reason folks, and the majority of the time they're not cryptic or trying to catch you out, they actually mean something.
And let's also notice that this is the same person who has just told me I come from England. There's implying something and then there's expecting people to read your mind.
Actually I was going to stop there but now I won't. You say "Please answer the question next time" but if I answered every stupid question posted on these boards I'd die of RSI (if that's possible). Just like the people who post "What's the best distro?" or "How do I see windows from linux?" or the even more common "Red Hat 9 XMMS MP3 problem" some things deserve to be ignored.
People who don't read error messages, can't search forums and won't use man pages before asking questions will never cope with linux.

No, I wouldn't call anyone 'mate', you've met too many londoners. I don't curse, it's vulgar, and whilst I'm not going to put to the test whether you can or can't make fun better than 'any Englishman' (which I doubt - sarcasm is something the rest of the world haven't taken to nearly as well as us) I didn't come here to make fun. I only respect those who demand it, ergo...
