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.

hey - I decided to install linux on my family's computer before I move to college, and I have come across a problem that fr surpasses my knowledge. my family also has an epson stylus cx6600 (fairly new) printer that they will keep, but I do not know how/where to find drivers for it. I have searched a bit, and I looked all over epson, both to no avail. does anyone know what I can do? thanks.
"Supported with gutenprint-5.0 beta 3 and later; alternatively, you can use the driver for the 6400, as mentioned. Color photos print exceptionally, black and whites are still in progress, because I took a break."
hey - I followed what you posted, installed gutenprint (I think? I cd'd to the directory, did the 'configure' script like they said, then the 'make' script like they said, then the 'make install' script like they said, although I doubt the last command did much, if anything.) regardless, I don't know what to do now. I have checked around for it since following the instructions, but I see nothing new on my comp. furthermore, when I try to print, there's nothing. could anyone clue me in on how I can configure my printer now, or how I can do whatever else I need to do to install the gutenprint? I understand I'm probably the biggest n00b ever, but I'm desperate. thanks.
