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.

These days I reinstall my Linux ,and I want to install gaim.I compiled with source code ,and also have mozilla-nss,mozilla-nspr(1.4.1) installed.so there are MSN and ICQ plugins present. I used Gaim with PROXY to connect to these servers,but the problem occured echoing YOU DISCONNECTED FORM SERVERS(can't connect to the servers).Both ICQ and MSN can't connect.
But when I used AMSN with same PROXY ip and port ,I got connected...every thing is OK,and I don't think this is my compiled and installed fault with gaim,because I have done it in another machine in somewhere,and all is ok.
Because I addressed in a Education Net with no route to the MSN and ICQ server.So I used proxy.Is there a probability for gaim open extra ports to connect ,and the proxy block these ports?
At the end of configure either mozilla-nss or GNUTLS was found.Also I tried used rpms to install on different Linux,but seems nothing different.
It sounds very strange,the error messages opened very soon after I clicked the SIGNON button.
Seemed only try to connect,but can't find a address.But Amsn just during a period time trying was success connected.
