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.

everythign has been going fairly smooth then tonight while I was using kopete msn died...it reconnects but doesnt' message people on my list...wtf....gaim says msn protocal isn't supported, what am I missing? Help...
well its the gaim that came w/ suse 9.0 personal. I just ran online update and it ran a package update for gaim....*fingers crossed*
Edit Nope POS still doesn't work. Same stupid error...protocal not supported. How do I fix this? I looked for another version of gaim, couldn't find one my system agreed with. I used amsn w/ redhat a long time ago but I can't seem to figure that out either.

I'm also disappointed with the 5 post min of this forum. I was typing away my problem, nice and detailed regarding VNC and tried to post - wham - "too bad you can't post cause you are a newbie". Yikes. Hit the back button and all info was lost.
Yup - figured that- I was just all disgruntled at the time of that posting. I understand completely. I've been using this site almost exclusively to build up two SUSE 9.1 Pros (1 home, 1 work) for eventual conversion of me from a Windows guy to Linux - just plain ole tired of Windows issues. Pretty much anything I searched for - I ended up here to get the answer - many many thanks.
does anyone else have the problem when they try to run amsn in suse 9.2 and it says it doesn't have the "wish" command , or some such tale relating loosely to that? or is it just something i've done incredibly wrong?
If wish command doesn't exist, then you don't have tcl/tk correctly installed.
If "wish amsn" works, but "./amsn" doesn't, edit 'amsn' file and set the
correct path to 'wish' in the first line. By default it's set to:
