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.

A troll is something that springs up and causes trouble, usually on purpose. The mythological trolls would pop up one bridges and cause trouble for passing travelers, often charging a toll. If the toll isn't paid then generally it would attack or refuse access to the bridge.
As it goes you should consider that you have been offered suggestions in this thread that you seemingly did not check or acknowledge until later on. I would advise you to read this thread, while what you are doing isn't strictly speaking covered here, I think it might still benefit you to read it.
Can you please expand on what you mean by they came in as maps? You are not describing your problem with any real meaningful detail and this makes it harder to diagnose your problem.

Well, I went to the math-linux project page and clicked the Download Now! link. The file I ended up with was an ISO image. So basically, I just had to right-click on it, and select Write to Disc in order to load it into my CD burning application (at that point, I stopped the experiment, as the burn itself isn't the issue here). FWIW, I'm on Ubuntu 8.10. EDIT: In fact, simply clicking the file does the trick. In other words, no need to right-click and select the Write to Disc option at all.
