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.

My final goal is to get Novell Group Wise running (at not charge, so I can test before having to buy the needed functions of the software package), but get hit at a snag with attempting to install Novell iManager to manage Novell eDirectory. I am running Fedora Core 10, so of course Novell will not support me without running SUSE and then all their other very expensive software products on top of that.
The error I get when attempting to install iManager 27 is: "The iManager install has detected an unsupported operating system version. (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) The installation program will now exit"
So I attempted an older version of iManager in hopes of that working, with installing iManager 26 I get error: "Compat is required. Please install compat and try installing again” but I had already installed: compat-libstdc++-296.2.96-141 and compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-64
What I am looking for is a way to either install iManager somehow, or find a free Linux distro that will support all required parts of Novell's Group Wise, or find some other free product that is similar to iManager that will work with Novell ConsoleOne
Please let me know if anyone out there can help me figure out this Linux stuff...
i am currently downloading OpenSUSE
and if this works that will be acceptable, but i would really like to be able to run on FEDORA since that is the current platform that my server is running... but if it really comes down to it, i can format my server, load VMWare ESX server and run FEDORA to support my current applications and services, and create another VMX for SUSE to run GroupWise.. but finding someway to just run on FEDORA10 is greatly preferred
I have the same problem with RHEL 5. Looks like at least the iManager portion of eDirectory only supports RHEL 3 & 4. If anyone found a way around this, I'm all ears. Using iManager workstation on a remote system works, but I'd like iManager server installed on my DSs.
