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 installed JPilot and, while it syncs with my TX, I can't figure out how to install a program with it. I tried downloading one and unzipping, and it downloaded to my desktop on my PC, but didn't install automatically like Palm desktop always did. When I tried to use the install tool in Jpilot, it would no longer sync.
I need a way to read .txt files on my TX since I have no way to convert files to .pdb anymore - the program I had was only for Windows. Thus, I need to install some kind of reader of large txt files onto my TX.
I found the JPilot manual online, and the way it says to install is exactly what I did. But as long as I have files to install, JPilot refuses to sync. It keeps coming up with the "install" screen instead of syncing and then the program finally locks up.
Should I uninstall JPilot, install GPilot to see if I can install a text reader better with that, and the uninstall that and re-install JPilot once I have a text reader on my Palm? I hear people saying they have trouble with GPilot, but maybe if I just get it to install a program?
Edited because I realized that JPilot locks up when I try to install anything, not just prc programs. I can't even install a .txt file without it locking up on the install screen.

Reason: Added info
To make text files readable on a Palm I use Abiword or OpenOffice Writer to make Doc files (.pdb) from text documents. Just open the text file in either program and do a "Save As" and select "Doc(.pdb)" as the file type.
I move them over to the Palm with the KDE Obex Client via Bluetooth.
I have never been able to get a Palm TX to sync reliably. Does yours synch properly and repeatably?
