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 know it's a different browser but it is based on mozilla which was a by product of netscape.
the issue is that many websites don't "advertise" that they work with firefox - but they do say a netscape version that they work with. I want to know which version of netscape will also mean that it works with firefox? thanks
it's not about netscpae versions, it's about w3c standards compliance. ns7 was the last release of netscape, so most standards compliant, not least because there were more standards around. support will only ever get better as versions go on.
also firefox is not "based" on anything at all. it is 100% new code.
For the best comparison I can think of would to compare Mozilla 1.7 to Netscape 7. That's about it, you can't really compare Firefox as mentioned above, as it is entirely new code. Yes, Firefox is created by the Mozilla Team, but it's not the Mozilla Browser, nor part of the Mozilla Browser Suit. Mozilla and Netscape are both Suite based applications, offering the utilities for Web Browsing, E-Mail, Newgroups, and IRC all in one package. Firefox on the other hand is a 'light browser.' That's all it is, a browser, no email application built in with it, no anything else. Now maybe you can understand why you can't really compare Firefox directly to a Netscape release.
