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.

Please, help me with my problem. I just installed Xine. I think I did everything as ordered. I did ./configure - make - make install. I want to start the program, but I don't know how to do it. I can find the files and things, but how to start Xine and how to make the shorticon?
I tried to wrote xine/Xine to the terminal and nothing happened. Then I tried to find the application from the desktop menu, it wasn't there eather. I must done something wrong during the installation.
Thank you very much, I'll visit these pages. I still have Windows, but I'll hope someday I'll format it and never gonna get it back. But these kind of problems make me sometimes think, "Why is it so hard with Linux?". I'll just want to use the computer, not all the time configuring it.
Thank you, again. I saw Xine there in that list of Mandrake's programs. I would like to install Mandrake, because I have heard good things about it. Bu my promblem is LG CD-RW. I just read somewhere that Mandrake might do bad things to LG CD-ROM.
Ps.What is the meaning of these numbers i386, i586 or i686 on the end of a package?
