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.

Thanx a lot for UR suggestions & views, over here I have a different situation and reason for asking this question, I have an Intranet running NT4 with IIS an application with COM objects..etc, Now none of this stuff will work with Netscape or Konqueror or Opera, I want my users to appreciate Linux and use it, for the last 6 months I am using Linux fairly good as a Desktop OS, My users are very much stuck up with M$ OS, what I want to give them is a scenario like what U can do with windows can be done with Linux, but only that it is a little faster and a lot more robust... Now many use the Intranet and the respective apps there which are not compatible or just wont make sense for Linux based browsers & yes I am on my way to migrate that stuff tp PHP with Apache, but in the mean time I am slowly trying to convince users to use Linux with Openoffice for their admin work etc.. These apps in the Intranet server are important and we need to use it daily for our work
I was reading a article on www.techrepublic.com and in one of the Discussion for All windows apps work fine on Linux using Codeweavers WINE, one member said that this version of IE for Solaris can be tweaked to work on Linux, He is yet to reply how he did it
So If can get IE to work in Linux, I achieve a situation that all is fine with using LINUX cos a lot of users now are putting up an objection that this can't be done in Linux ...blah blah, I am convincing them to a good extent and things are improving quite well. Its going to take a while until I migrate all the apps to PHP but in the mean time I want an interium solution for users to use IE on LINUX
Perhaps I have to give up hopes or wait for a reply from that member in techrepublic discussion forum
No, you should be able to get it to work under Wine. It will probably involve tweaking a load of files to really fool IE into thinking it's on a Windows machine, but it has been done before, so it can be done again.
There are alternatives, for the interim. You could look at things like VMWare (I know it's a cracking a walnut with a sledge hammer, but it'd work).
Anyho, not to be daft, because I'm not really all that good on my intranet stuff, but why can't these things be run from Nutscrape? (note: genuine question, no intention to incite a riot)
