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.

Cany anybody tell me how to make netscape 7 and opera run directly from the desktop .
Without the shell of course,I had tried like this but this doesn`t work :
create netscape with emacs in /usr/sbin
and link a icon from my desktop but it doen'st work.
can any body tell me how to make it work.
easy ways SHOULD be to right click on the desktop (KDE, don't know about gnome) on the list of options select create new "link to application"
when the box appears, in the title box, for opera type opera, then on the icon picture click that, when the icons selection box appears, use the little dropdown for applications, then scroll to find the opera icon, select that and click OK
then when it drops you back into the original "link to application" box, you should have the opera icon showing and opera for the title
click on the tab marked "execute" and in the top box marked command, type opera and then just click OK.
You SHOULD then have a "clickable" desktop icon for opera.
a quick point, this should normally work for most installed applications, but the command isn't always the same, sometimes it's a little different, and other times very different (but mostly it seems to be the first two that work i.e. opera for opera, and realplay for realplayer - and thus far, it's always worked for me, though occasionally you might have to search the net for an icon)
Thanks !everything work now,I never saw this install.sh command in opera folder that I just did untar and I was working all the way around to link the opera command in /bin folder but when I compile this install.sh thing ;just opera and it work .
I used to be netscape / opera user on windows ;It had been only a month or so to mirge into linux and I guess I couldn't let my old broswer go;But I 'll try that firebird thing ;by the way: can anybody go to http://www.pansagar.com and try listen to some song (which need real plug in);it is a music site from my country and I couldn't listen to it by any broswer yet;In window only IE work;But here nothing seem to work ;real plug 's in place but I couldn't listen to it yet;
I had install Mozilla 0.77 but I am running quite a erro ;Frist of all after I had untar the file in /home/`~/mozillafirebird .I could run the program only through shell as root or I get this error
[ngan_yine@unit2 MozillaFirebird]$ ./MozillaFirebird
INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: No manager for initializing factory?
System error?:: Success
and I had check all the file and folder and all the permission r+w+x able for user but still it won't run on user and I am missing font and stuff in tool -option and after untaring the file is there anyway to compile the file?
thanks for the advice ;apart from all the problem ,firebird is fast;
I have this problem with almost all the broswer that came from binary source fiel that doesn't need
to compile like netscape and Mozillafirebird.With opera ,I just compile this installopera sh and bang it smooth as silk but with Mozillafirebird I am lost.But I 'll paid all my time to fix that because firebird is so light and fast.
no ,thos ~ is my /home/ngan_yine/mozillafirebird , I don't like to keep or install anything in root folder.I really don't know what went wrong ,all the file in firebird folder is read write and exe mod for user(ngan_yine).I'll check that firebird fourm .
