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 just installed the new FireFox, but I still haven't learned how to create shortcuts on the KDE start menu. Also, the only way I know of to start FireFox is to use the console to run "./firefox" from the FireFox folder. Is there another way?
hmm i need it for modem driver, coz my modem not recognize by mandrake (so i dl manualy from smlink.com) in make file the readme tell i should include kernel directory ( in /urs/src/linuxkenel/) in my mandrake fresh install there is no linux kernel directory (donwload version). Or i can installed n run without a kernel source ?
thanks bro, ill try it. Hope it works.
my kernel version is (using uname -r) 2.4.22-10mdk.
so i should copy kernel-source-2.4.22-10mdk.rpm from the cd and extract it to /urs/src/2.4.22-10mdk is that right bro santas ?
No, you only have to go to install packages and search for kernel-source-2.4.22-10mdk then install it, or you can install it from CD (you don't need to copy it anywhere) double click on the file then login as root and follow the instructions.
