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.

Can you give more information then what you have provided? Have you tried running mozilla from a shell? If so, do you get any errors? How exactly are you trying to run Mozilla? Have you upgraded mozilla? More info please...
my mozilla goes to start and tells me to select a profile when i try to go to the old profile i set up (last time this happened) it says that one is in use. I just booted so i dont see how. I dont want to lose all my bookmarks and shit again. Is there anything i can do to release the other profile?
I used the mv line mentioned above. the next time i started mozilla from the commandline it asked me about the profile, then started. but if i click on the mozilla icon in gnome, it says 'starting mozilla,' but then never actually starts. i'm using mozilla 1.4. any other ideas?
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
you probably just got a typo or something.
if the .mozilla directory in your home directory gets
moved to a different name or deleted, then you will
not get asked about a profile. mozilla thinks you are
starting it for the first time. then you can put in your
and then copy your old mail files and bookmarks and
history or whatever you want over the new one.
don't do it will mozilla running though.
if the gnome icon and typing mozilla do different things,
they are probably not pointing to the right file.
if you are inexperienced, find your bookmarks.html
file first and whatever else you want to save, and
copy them to somewhere you think safe, and that
you can remember. then do it.
