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.

Hey everyone! Ok so I finally gave up on looking through the window and became a penguin instead ... I installed Suse 9.1 ... I have a few questions:
1) I installed Mozilla FireFox, but I don't know how to run the application
How would I make it my default browser and also have a link on the desktop?
2) I installed AMSN, and the only way I know how to run it is by going to the terminal and typing "./amsn" ... can't I just have a desktop icon?
3) I have an iPod (First Gen. 20GB) and it only has a FireWire cable with it. Now that wasn't a a problem considering I have 3 FireWire ports in my Computer ... but Suse doesn't pick it up when I hook it up
Now if asking for desktop icons and stuff like that is too "windowy" then I apologize. But as I said i'm new to all of this.
Well, where did you install these applications?
Besides, you say you run amsn by typing ./amsn in a terminal. So the command would be: /path/to/amsn
where /path/to should be the path to your amsn installation.
Originally posted by securehack What do you mean "nothing" happened? When you press enter, it should just start up firefox and go back to console. Did it give any messages at all?
It's never a bother. We all work to help each other. Just to pay back, spread the word about linux =D.
Ok, I goto the FireFox folder (file:/home/ilovelagar/Program Files/Mozilla FireFox), and right-click, and goto actions, and then terminal.
Then I'm promted with "ilovelagar@linux:~/Program Files/Mozilla FireFox> "
Here I typed in "firefox" and I receive this response "bash: firefox: command not found"
As for the spreading the word about linux, i'm trying lol, but its so hard to convince people who are fixed to windows, but i'll try, I got my bro at about 50/50 lol as opposed to his stance of 0/100 yesterday haha, he sat down, had a few mins with my comp, and was like "this aint bad" lol
