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 want to get amsn to work, and i have to install the tcl thing (i still dont really know what that is) for a "wish" command. I thought I had installed it, but it still doesnt work. Anyone has an idea of what I should try to do next? Do I need to configure more than just run the install.sh?

Wish is the interpreter for Tcl scripts, like Bash for, uh, bash/sh shell scripts. Tk/Tcl comes in 2 tarballs/rpms: Tk-* and Tcl-*. You need to install both of them. Wrt to the tarballs and compiling from source I can't remember which had to go first, but I'd say Tk.
*Btw, if you want an (less generic) answer (faster) you should post what tarball you're using (version) and what you've done to install it, where you got stuck, what errors you got, etc etc. That'll help ppl help you more efficiently.
Well, now I know that I still need the TK tarball, as I just installed the TCL. The name of it is ActiveTcl220.127.116.11-linux-Ix86.tar.gz. I have downloaded gaim (If I had only heard of it before...) and Im installing it. Thank you for your help, I will continue with Tk, I might as well have it complete...
