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 this question has been asked before, but I need more information.
I am trying to install and start gnoRPM. I am running Red Hat 9.0 on my Pentium III
Dell 2500 Laptop. I installed gnoRPM via an RPM package as it was not installed with my installation CD's.
1) After installing gnoRPM by a command line interface, I attempted to start the program and I get the response:
"Failed to open /var/lib/rpm/packages.rpm" in a separate window and the progam does not open.
I am logged in as the root user and have also tried the suggested remedy of starting gnoRPM through the command line interface doing a "su" before triggering the program.
This does not work. Is there anything else that will remedy this problem?
2) I am curious as to why this program was not installed when I initially installed Red Hat 9.0. I may have omitted this package but would also like to know if it is included on the installation disks, which section is it included in.
