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'm having a related problem with my Acrobat 5 installation. I'm running Fedora 2 with a Gnome GUI. I was able to successfully install Acrobat and can run the executable, but Gnome seem unaware of the new package. For example, I had to manually add an icon to the desktop (not the Acrobat icon, I couldn't find that); when I click on a PDF file, Gnome automatically opens it with the Gnome PDF viewer, not Acrobat-- even though I have gone into File Types and Programs and specified Acrobat as the application to use for PDF's; when I attempt to print from Acrobat, none of the printers I installed with Print Manager are available to me.
Any ideas on how to get Gnome to play nicely with the Acrobat package?
The "Preferred Applications" applet in FC2 only displays options for choosing a browser, mail client, text editor or terminal type. There is an applet called "File Types and Programs" that will allow you to create an association between a file extension and an application. I have already used this to assign the file type pdf to acroread, but for whatever reason, when I open a pdf I am still in the Gnome PDF reader.
Is there something else I need to check? Perhaps a conf file somewhere that needs editing?
