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.

Alright, this is a syntax question in that I am not sure what linux is trying to tell me, the level of seriousness of the error, or even what may be done to fix this error. The Error I get is:
YPBINDPROC_DOMAIN: Domain not bound
This error shows up with frightening regularity every time I first start Netscape, or when I go into Super User mode in a terminal (pops up right after entering password). After taking mental note of this error, then I just go about my business and nothing (that I can notice) seems to happen.
Umm...What is this error trying to tell me?
Oh, on a side note to anyone running KDE w/ Mandrake 8.0...I have netscape installed to a directory (netscape created) /ort/netscape/. The only way I can run netscape is to do it through a terminal/file manager. I have added it to the menu, and pointed the menu to the file: /ort/netscape/netscape and even tried /ort/netscape/.netscape, but it doesn't launch it. I then copied the file 'netscape' to /usr/bin/ and the menu then launches it, but by doing this it doesn't notice plug-ins. Anyone run into this and/or know how to fix it?
That message comes from the Network Information Service (formerly Yellow Pages, hence the "YP"). If you aren't intentionally running NIS services, turn them off. Look for references to "ypbind" or "ypserv" in your startup scripts and disable them. If you are running NIS, it's telling you that it has problems (can't find the YP server, probably).
