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.

k this totally isn't working... can you just tell me how you would install it? and the types of files i need for it? cause to tell you the truth i have been trying to get this thing to work for 2 days now and if i can't get it to work soon i am just going to give up on linux, reformat and go back to windows xp
tar xvvzf gaim-0.82.1.tar.gz
i dunno, i'm too tired and i'm going to sleep. there's prolly a much easier way, but i don't know what distro you're using or whatever so i don't know the package manager. ask this again in the morning and there'll be a million people on to answer.
