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.

ok ok ok ok any time i try and install an online game and after it's finished installing and i try to open it, it says that i have No application suitable for automatic installation is available for handling this kind of file.
p.s I've only had Linux for a few weeks soo I'm kinda a newbie
Programs for Windows don't run under Linux natively (i.e. "by themselves", for want of a better phrase). Wine is a program that lets you run Windows programs under Linux. Cedega is like Wine, but specifically for games.
Man, is very simple. Windows and Linux are different operating systems. Would you put a PlayStation CD game in a XboX 360 console? You wou't, because you know they are not compatible.
Same for Windows applications and Linux applications, yet we have "wine" which is "kind of" an emulator that will allow you to run some Windows applications under Linux. Wine is free. How to install it depends on the Linux distribution you are using. Cedega is a special wine (commercial version) which works better and is oriented to games. I have not played with cedega, but I can imagine that if you buy the program it will come with some sort of installer.
As Nylex said, please in the future try to use more descriptive posts. The more information you give, the better (and faster) answers you will get.
