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 recently installed IceWM, which uses xterm as the terminal emulator. I don't like xterm's scroll bar and tried using the gnome-terminal. While it's scroll bar is better (line by line vs. pages), I don't want to borrow out of the Gnome parts bin for another wm. Does anyone know of a good stand-alone terminal emulator with a normal scroll bar?
i use aterm and it works fine apart from a few things i can't work out for the life of me, like why it *always* scrolls on tty output even when you tell it not to which is really really annoying, it is based on xterm code, but with user friendly tweaks, and a more normal scrollbar to boot. i'm after something better too though and can't find what i want. Eterm is OTT for what it's meant to be and the menubars and such are ugly and always insists on some silly background...

Ok, I've got the eterm binary in an rpm. Where does it go? In a /bin directory, an /sbin directory, or will rpm put it where it should go? Next question is "Which /bin or /sbin directory do I put it in?"
I've read the filesystem hirarchy standard, but that doesn't seem to help. I've just never been able to find a good rule for where things should go.
