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.

Ok for starters I've been reading this board for several weeks and I also bought a RedHat 9 book that I have also read from cover to cover, so please don't flame me for wanting just the answers, but I'm at the end of my rope here.
For starters I have never dealt with an OS that makes me feel so stupid, I have my A+, MCP, and N+ and for the last 2 weeks since I started using linux I feel like I have the intelligence of my Grandmother!!
Thank you for letting me vent, now onto the problem.
I installed Mozilla Firebird and I've been trying to get the java plugin to work. Whenever the page gave me the plugin error it loaded a popup to install the java plgin 1.3 for Linux so I installed it and it said it was successful and to restart the browser, well to no avail I still cannot view java from the browser.
I also read several posts from a DrOzz??!? I think, anyway I installed it (JRE1.4.2) just like it said with no errors, but I still cannot get java to load in Firebird.
Please tell me again why I want to learn Linux?!?
Thanks for letting me ramble, I feel much better now!
