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'm still trying to get back my MCC. I've looked at the help but none of the commands I tried worked. MCC is in /home/del/MCC so I thought if I moved it to /usr/bin it would work. I'm getting confused with the option stuff. Can someone tell me how I can do this? I assume I have to do this as root?
I used the su and then the password . When you say that I may not have the file what exactly does that mean? This all happened very quickly, I clicked on the icon and a box popped up saying " Could not find service
'Configuration/ Mandrake Control Center" so I typed in "locate MCC" and it said /home/del/MCC. On another board I asked how to activate it and all I heard back was that it wasn't supposed to be there, that's not normal and it should be in /usr/bin. It won't let me install from the cd it keeps saying that it couldn't find such and such even though I am looking right at the icon. I'll have a look around to see where to get mc commander besides the ML cd.
You could install it from anywhere you like..you should have it on your installation cd too. Even better idea is to backup everything and re-install linux (If you have trouble installing desktop env.).
Boot off the Mandrake CDs, start install program, reformat partitions that Linux is currently installed on (make sure you backed up your data to a different partition or removable media!), then just install like normal
