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 am a former Windows user who has now converted all the way over to Linux Mandrake 9.2. I have a website that I used to edit with Dreamweaver and/or Frontpage. Is there anything like this for Linux, that still alows that nifty Edit/Html/Preview kinda thing like frontpage? I have looked at a few things but I want peoples opions first.
Its my choice for HTML editing under Linux. I doubt you will find something like Dreamweaver, but HTML is such a simple tag language... I understand what peoples see at dreamweaver, but the same good thing could be achieved with a good html editor
I enjoy the simplicity of using Dreamweaver and/or Frontpage. Sometimes I don't wanna have to pick through tags. I will consider Quanta but GINF is looking like what I need. BTW Whats the deal with all the programs starting with "g"? Like GIMP, GAIM, GINF? How many other programs start with G that are handy to have.
"BTW Whats the deal with all the programs starting with 'g'?"
Perhaps, some applications the "G" stands for gtk, but I know specifically in Gaim, Gnome, and others, it stands for GNU (which stands for "GNU's Not Unix"). Since the majority of "Linux" implementations/distributions (I'd say all, but I've had obtuse people say otherwise) are based on GNU/Linux.
Well, technically, you could consider "GNU" a platform. I know for a fact, that Gaim stands for "GNU AOL Instant Messenger", and GNOME stands for "GNU Network Object Model Environment". GNOME is an official GNU project as well (I'm not 100% sure about Gaim, despite the name in the acronym). Anyhow, "g" standing just for Gnome is a bit of a misgnomer ;-)
