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.

When using Nautilis on Mandake, how can I set the settings to open in the same window? Currently when I click on a directory, it opens up in a new window....which after awhile you get alot of different windows...very annoying.
I assumed there would be a way to add navigator buttons, but I don't see a way and also can't seem the find the setting to keep everything in 1 window if I'm just browsing.
Unfortunately there is no option for that. There is a behaviour tab, but nothing that says to open in the same window. Or in any other tab in preferences. All there is under the behavior tab is single/double click option, executable text viewing options, and a couple trash options.
That's a bit odd. Well, try going under "Applications >> File Browser", then see if those options I recommended are available from there. This should be nautilus/gnome standard, but then again, some distros have very custom versions of Gnome. I hope somebody with Mandriva give you a hand if this does not work.
Thanks Redazz! That worked beautifully. Lots of other options to play with...hehe. Good thing I'm running Linux in VMWare so I can take periodic snapshots for when (not if....when) I screw something up!
