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.

If you plan on playing CS: Source or anything the requires Steam I suggest you sign up for good. Valve make regular updates to Steam and they tend to break compatibility with Cedega. The Transgaming team usually fixes the problem on the same day but to have access to the updates you need to be a subscriber.
You could try normal Wine and if you look around their mailing list there are a few DX9 patches floating around. Another option is this but it is lacking a few features that real Cedega has. Mostly though, this is what people use. A lot of people who want to play games just dual-boot, those who don't want to dual-boot (like myself) use Cedega.
it won't. you might get a couple of games to work, they'll have glitches, you'll get frustrated, say Linux is rubbish and go back to Windows. Use Cedega or don't bother. There is a free CVS version of cedega available, but again, you'll probably have a LOT of diffuculty even getting that installed.
