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've downloaded Vidalia, but instead of No Configuration, I chose One-Time Restart, and now whenever I try to open TOR, it says that it is already running. I've rebooted already, but that didn't help at all. I would like to start using TOR as an experiment and to remain anonymous. Sure, there's HideMyAss! add-on for Google Chrome, but I just want to try it all out. Can someone help me?
This is what it says
"Vidalia detected that the Tor software exited unexpectedly.
Please check the message log for recent warning or error messages."
"Jul 09 23:50:12.088 [Notice] Tor v0.2.1.30. This is experimental software. Do not rely on it for strong anonymity. (Running on Linux x86_64)
Jul 09 23:50:12.089 [Notice] Initialized libevent version 1.4.13-stable using method epoll. Good.

Ah, thanks. It worked perfectly fine. Last time I tried to use Tor, before I reinstalled Ubuntu, I only had the Alpha version available for Firefox, but now the Stable version works even on Aurora. Thank you, so now on Google Chrome, I have HideMyAss! and on Firefox I have Tor. I have a question, is there something similar to Tor on Chrome?
The link about making your own Tor Button didn't work at all, I couldn't connect to anything so I had to switch back to direct connection. I did everything it said, I put 127.0.0.1 in the HTTP Proxy, 8118 in port, and I enabled "Use Same Proxy for all server protocols" and in the Switch option, first profile is direct and second is Tor. When I switch it doesn't work. To confirm Tor is up, I used Tor button for Firefox, and it worked fine.
