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 can not get Netscape 4.8 to install. I am very new to linux, but I have installed a couple of programs but this one has me. I get as far as untarring it and that is it. Any tips is greatly appreciated. Thanks
why are you trying to install 4.8? versino 7 is nearly out? either way, either get an RPM from rpmfind.net or a binary version from netscape.com tar.gz's are silly for somethign like netscape. search this site for more information about installing software.
Run the ns-install script as root. Everything should go pretty smoothly. I'm curious to know why you are installing such an old version of Netscape when there are much more capable browsers such as Mozilla and Phoenix.
