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.

Its not that difficult to install. You first need to check the version of Python thats installed on your system. To do this, run a terminal and enter "python -V" (without the quotes). After that download the version of blender that matches your version of python. When the download is complete, unzip the file using a gui archive manager or by doing
tar xjvf blender-2.48a-linux-glibc236-py25-i386.tar.bz2
Make sure that the blender version in the command above, matches the version of blender you downloaded. After that you need to change into the extracted directory and run
or click on the icon labelled blender in the directory you extracted when you unzipped the blender tarball. It might be best to create a short cut on your desktop or in the menu.
Even if you get it installed, will it be usable? I've never actually used Blender but from what I understand of it's far from suited for use on a 1024x600 screen and an Intel Atom processor could take a while to render stuff.
you have to be in blender folder to do ./blender
you just cant open a console and type ./ blender you need to cd to the folder then ./blender
just rename the folder to just blender..that way you dont have to type in cd blender.x.xxx.xx
x's are the version number and extension...
