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.

mmm... new to linux, blah blah blah. Using Suse 9.2. In the two months I've had using linux, I don't think I've ever gotten anything to work any better than it did the first day. Videos, games, printers, usb, none of it works. I understand that this will take time, and my growth has probably been stunted by the fact I can only use the linux about 30 minutes a day due to job/school. However, idealogically I can not return to windows. Now that summer is approaching I hope to have time to understand linux.

No luck? I'm lost if "make" doesn't work. What do I do?
By the way, what does "make" do? What does "configure" do?
Here's a list of files in the folder.

Yes, I know it used to say "/Desktop", but trust me, the output is the same (I just did that script real quick to get its output). As for the readme, here it is:
Linux Doom Legacy 1.41
This is the public release of the binary Linux version
of Doom Legacy.
It has been compiled with GCC 3.2.2 and may not work on
old distribution. If llxdoom doesn't work on your system,
we suggest you to download the source code on our CVS
server at sourceforge.net (or get the source tar ball)
and compile it like that:
OK, what you've downloaded isn't the source. You've got a binary package, which, from the look of that README, you type llxdoom to run.
The instructions about make LINUX=1 only apply to the source package.
So this is Doom I? If you really only want to play it (instead of installing for proving you can run it natively), and you have a fairly new machine, you may want to take a look at dosbox (which comes with your SuSE 9.2). For this, you'll need the DOS version of Doom (but no DOS, as dosbox comes with it's own). It runs Doom just fine, and a lot of other older DOS games.
