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.

Mandrake 7.2 is ancient. If you want to experience Linux you really ought to go for an up to date distro. This is probably why you're having a ton of dependency issues trying to upgrade stuff and why hardware support is flaky. my advice would be to get a more up to date version of mandrake and do some Googling -- the Rute tutorial is very good at getting to understand the basics of Linux from a command line perspective.
