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 just bought a game called Heroes of Might and Magic III
the graphics are really tight, and the game is not bad at all...is sort of like Diablo 2 I suppose....but it's a lot of fun. And you can play on line against other players just like Diablo 2. You guys should check it out,
Location: Rome, Italy ; Novi Sad, Srbija; Brisbane, Australia
Distribution: Ubuntu / ITOS2008
Yup Heroes of might and magic was the first game i got for Linux. Actually some three years ago i got it as a present, and since it said only for Linux, i installed Linux and when i saw how it is i never went back to Windows
Well not quite, but one of the reasons i got Linux was to play Heroes of Might and Magic III cuz i only had the Linux version.
Now i also have UT, Soldier of Fortune, Rune, and i ordered new UT 2003 but it still didnt ship.
Also you can get Linux binaries and play quake, quake2, quake3, RTCW and UT on Linux if you have the windows version.
These games work fine on my machine:
Quake III Arena (incl. many mods)
Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Soldier of Fortune I and II (Wine)
Red Alert II (Wine)
If you need help installing them, let me know.
On my website you can find info on how to install Soldier of Fortune II and RTCW.
