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 don't know how to use my 2 key mouse to do highlight (copy)-paste on command line, just as 3 key mouse does on Unix machine. When installing my (RedHat 7.1) system, I choosed "generic PS/2 mouse and checked "emulate" box. I assume that by combining with "shift" key, the mouse could work like 3 key mouse. But It turns out not to be the case on command line mode.
Could any one help to solve this problem? Thanks so much in advance.
the third button is clicking both of them at the same time, at least with current slackware versions... I remember back in 2.x version of slackware it used to be shift+button so I'm sure its not to hard to change.
But why would you be using a 7.1 RH system in the year 2009? RH7 was succeeded by RH 8 and 9, then by RedHat Enterprise 1,2,3,4 and currently 5. In short, you are using the equivalent of windows 98 or windows 2000...
Now that you mention it, yes, but wtf? How did a post that old re-appear as if it had been submitted only recently? I sure did not go hunting through the archives to dig it up again, even though I appear to be the first one to have responded after eight years of silence. So how did it get back from the dead?
