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.

usually rpm packages will check to see if you have installed what you need for the app to probably work, but in this case it didn't. sometimes you can get the libraries you need off of your install disk, but sometimes not. downloading libraries often doesn't work because those are linked to other versions of libs that you don't have. you often have to compile the stuff yourself.
Thanks soo much to everyone helping me out, much appreciated! And feel free to smack me in the head should my relentless thanking become annoying.
Downloaded Ximian Red Carpet, ran rpm from the terminal: rpm -Uvh red-carpet-2.2.2-0.ximian.7.1.i586.rpm
And the error is: warning: red-carpet-2.2.2-0.ximian.7.1.i586.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID fd4fe9e9
error: Failed dependencies:
rcd >= 2.0 is needed by red-carpet-2.2.2-0.ximian.7.1
I'm still trying to doing this on my own while enlisting the support of the forums, I just don't want anyone thinking I want a hand out. RTFM does apply here, yes, and I'm tryin to find it in between postings.
Did you download the rcd package from ximian? When you go to download the files it gives you several packages that you need to download. Get rcd and install it first. Then install redcarpet. You can also install rug which is the command line version of redcarpet. Just a note Ximian does not oficially support mandrake 10 yet. But the 9.2 packages should suffice: http://www-files.ximian.com/redcarpe...drake-92-i586/
