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 running redhat 9 and i downloaded the rpm for camediaplay to use my camera. i went to the program, and it said it had installed, but i can't find it. i don't know how to run it and my wife is getting pissed that she can't download the pix from the camera. any help would be great.
Well, was this download something to add support for your camera or a program to load pictures from? Have you read the documentation for the program on how to use it? Is this camera connect via usb or serial port, etc? More details always get better replies as we can't just guess for you.
sorry about that. it's a serial connection, and it's supposed to let me download the pix. i read the man page, but it is a bit confusing. it has a bunch of stuff like: .nM camediaplay
.Op Fl duvD
etc..... i can't make any sense of it. it doesn't say what to do to make it run. i tried using the run from the menu and typed in camediaplay, but it didn't do anything. i'm stuck, and very unfamiliar with linux. which is unfortunate, since i can't use my win xp due to an installation error on my part(i erased the mbr and can't get it back). i made a backup, but it is on the xp hd, and i can't get to it.
camediaplay is a command line tool. Meaning you run it in a terminal/console and give it commands. The website for it has crap for documentation, even the man page for it doesn't give very many details.
You would be better off installing digikam, gtkam, xcam or one of the other many GUI tools.
And, in futuro, never breathe a word about such things to one's spouse until you know not only that "it can be done" but that it's working. It's hard to mix good customer-support with the threat of c~o~l~d feet placed squarely in the small of one's back!
thanx guys for the advice. i will definately try another tool for the camera. and as for the cold feet thing, she is so hot because i dicked with the computer that i need watch what i do from now on. although, she is checking her email now, so that much helps.
