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.

Right now I am using AIM for Linux but I'd rather use Kopete instead. Whenever I attempt to connect to the AIM server in Kopete it momentarily connects, and then disconnects within the second it does connect.
Right now I am running Kopete 0.8.1 on KDE 3.2.1 on SuSE 9.1 Personal, and I do plan to upgrade to 9.2 over the weekend.
I've also been experiencing this same issue with AIM and Kopete. I haven't got a large amount of Linux experience, so I can't really offer much in the way of explaining the situation, but I'm definitely getting the same response from Kopete. MSN seems to work, and I set up another AIM account just to see what would happen, and it connected just fine (though it would not show people as being online).
I'm currently running Mepis from CD... if anyone has any answers to the great Kopete question, I'm sure that we would very much appreciate it! Ta-ta.
