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.

have recently switched to Linux, using Red Hat 9. I have installed Rox 2.1.3-1, but don't know how to resolve a MIME problem. Before installing Rox, I installed shared-mime-info-0.15-2. However, when I start up Rox, I get the following warning:
"The standard MIME type database (version 0.9 or later) was not found. The filer will probably not show the correct types for different files. You should download and install the 'shared-mime-info-0.9' package from here:
If you have already installed this package, check that the permissions allow the files to be read (check /usr/local/share/mime/globs or /usr/share/mime/globs)."
When I look in the 'globs' file, all it says is:
"# This file was automatically generated by the
# update-mime-database command. DO NOT EDIT!
what does that tell me about permissions?
Although at the moment Rox is mis-identifying all my files, it looks pretty good and I would like to get it sorted out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
