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.

Hi All, I'm Fuelman and I'm new to Linux OS and the Forums...I need some help...can anybody please tell me how to open a Windows .pub file here in Linux.
I'm running a split hard drive...Windows XP and Linux Ububtu...The computer has 3 hard drives and on One drive i have all my bank stuff (Office 2003)which is a .pub file...I can access the file, but when I double click it office 2.2 opens but give me a long list of options...what do I need to do to open the .pub file?
pub is a publisher file I believe, and as far as I know not supported by OpenOffice(I may be wrong).
If you want helpful responses you need to put a helpful Subject title which you did not do. "HELP" Please is almost guaranteed to get no response.
It says nothing about your problem and is considered lazy and ignorant.
What you should have put was "Opening .pub files with OpenOffice 2.2" or something similar. Of course a quick google search of:
OpenOffice "microsoft publisher" support
Yields several hits on forums saying that OpenOffice does not support
Yes, of course you need an authentic and very expensive copy of Publisher - just like you're supposed to spend $300 on Word, $300 on Excel...!
As for Crossover, it's pretty cheap. You make a one-off $40 dollar fee, and you're away. It generally works very well, and you can even get (some) games to run.
