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 got Netscape downloaded and (almost) successfully installed on my machine. However, Netscape does not appear in my "start directory" (at least, that's what its called in Windows--i.e. the directory that begins in the lower left portion of the screen with the green suse icon). I have to go to the root directory to activate the program by clicking a "shell script" icon that starts the program (then it works just fine).
I cannot get the Netscape icon on my desktop either. I can put a "link to shell script" icon on the desktop, and that does start the program just fine. Can anyone help me finish this installation so that it is a bit more "professional"? I would like to get Netscape into the same directory as all of the other web browsers that I have.
In the past, I downloaded the Epiphany and Amaya web browsers and they automatically went to the correct directory when I "untarred" and installed them, so I can't understand why the Netscape didn't. By the way, I did download the linux compatible version of Netscape.
