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.

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.

Im pretty new to Linux and after i installed Red Hat 9, with all the packages selected, Im trying to figure out how to delete the ones i dont want anymore. Is there an easy way? or is it all through the command prompt?
I am also a newbie and also with a million and one questions.
I have been doing the opposite, installing a few that I did not when of the whole installation. I think it is the same way.
Go to K or Red Hat symbol at the bottom left as in start button in WIN, and then look for Installing/Uninstalling packages or something like it. I think it is in Preferences.
I'm sorry but I can not check what I'm saying. I'm on dual boot with WIN and I cannot configure my modem in linux so to be logged in linux I cannot be on the net and whem I'm on the net I'm logged in Win.
We all have problems.
Distribution: Fedora Core 1,RH AS 2.1, RH AS 3.0, Mandrake 9.0
couple ways you could query the rpm database ( rpm -qa |grep <name of package> then rpm -e <name of package> to remove it )or if you have a graphic card and monitor attached to your machine or you are logged in remotly from a graphics adapter you can start ( under redhat ) redhat-config-packages and that will give you a nice gui interface.
