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.

- I already have installed firefox from the Fedora3 CD but it is "Firefox/0.10.1" and I wanted to install the newest version.
- This is also an exercise in how to (1) download a piece of software and (2) install it, (3) know where it is, (4) deinstall it.
- is there a way to get an .RPM of Firefox so this is all automatic?
I put in my fedora 3 DVD and choose to install "all development packages" and it started to install.
Unfortunately after awhile it said, "put in Fedora CD 2" but I got this DVD from a magazine and there is just one, so I had to cancel the installation of the development tools.
Is there any way to ONLY install the "libstdc++.so.5" that it needs?
What is that? The standard gcc thing that I keep seeing mentioned?
