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 have a linpus linux AOA110,
I have had it a couple of years but now any website i go on says :
Flash Player out of date, or click here to install missing plug ins.
I have tried many times to get it working and have tried looking at other forums but they are all dated and not working. I got as far as downloading and i click and do stuff on other forums and it saays upto date, but it's not because whenever i go on a website that requires flash it doesnt work!
So, please could someone give me instructions - simple as i might not understand otherwise!
[user@localhost ~]$ sudo su
[root@localhost user]# rpm -Uvh flash-plugin-188.8.131.52-release.i386.rpm
error: open of flash-plugin-184.108.40.206-release.i386.rpm failed: No such file or directory
[root@localhost user]# rpm -Uvh adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
error: open of adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm failed: No such file or directory
As someone else already said, you version of Linux is probably more out of date than your version of Flash.
It may very well be that the solution to your Flash problem is replace Linpus with something current. Ubuntu's website has simple instructions for how to download it and create a bootable USB drive to do the install from. (As divisive as their new Unity desktop environment is, Netbooks seems to be one place it works quite well on.)
