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 have Mandriva 10 installed on 2 computers. On one I have just installed Pan 0.133 newsreader successfully and am able to scroll through newsgroups and download.
On the other I cannot figure how to find newsgroups. I tried uninstalling and re-installing to see if I would get a chance during install but no. I can't remember how I got them on the 'successful' machine.
I'm not the one who can't remember something they only just did.
I also don't post asking for help on something so basic that I figured it out once but can't be bothered to do again.
I used to use pan, about 6 years ago. It's not rocket science. And if you actually followed the links I kindly found for you you might learn something.
Yesterday I put Pan on a 3rd computer with no problem - must be a problem with my mandriva install or with the computer. It is almost time for the Spring edition of Mandriva - I will do a clean install on that machine and see. Thanks to all who have taken the time to look and to smoker who tried to help.
