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 installed MDK 9.2 on an older spare computer several times and it keeps omitting the "Configure Computer" catagory in the KDE menu. No "MenuDrake" either. "/usr/sbin/drakconf" doesn't bring it up either, "no file or directory". Ideas?
Thanks for the replies but neither worked. I reinstalled again and it came up the same with no way to access Mandrake Control Center. Can't set up the internet or anything. Maybe my computer is too slow and old to use MDK? 266 pros, 96 M ram.
Okay, so you tried running mcc from the terminal as root? Right, that means that it isn't installed. Type "urpmi drakconf grpmi rpmdrake" as root, thatt should install the needed packages.
There may be a few more though.
