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.

OK - so i've set up a MySQL DB under Windows before, so I know it shouldn't be that difficult.
I installed RHES v3 and selected MySQL as a package to install as well. When I search the RPM's in the resulting installation, I find the following components:
OK - so looking through the documentation and such, I can't seem to find an actual document that relates directly to what I have installed. Everything talks so generically, it doesn't help me specifically, and when I find anything specific, it doesn't correlate to what I actually find on my hard drive.
Sooooo . . .
Look, this is all i want to do - make a DB, give it a name, and start it. It only needs one user with one password and one table. The most freaking simple DB in the world. It should be freaking easy, but its beyond me.
Do I have everything I need? (should I get yet another RPM)
Do I need to compile an RPM that I have already?
Should I delete this set of packets and get a different version which, theoretically is complete and ready to go?
Is there a secret document hiding from me some place?
Am i the first person to ever try to put MySQl on RedHat ES?
Where have the real superheros of our age gone to?
