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.

Hi, I'm having some trouble printing MS Excel spreadsheets under RH9 Linux and OpenOffice.org Calc v. 1.0.2. I have a HP DeskJet 932C Printer connected via USB; I have CUPS configured correctly to the best of my knowledge, but when I print a MS Excel spreadsheet, it seems to print a lot bigger than it should be and usually of one part of the spreadsheet. For example, I'm trying to print a contact list and when I print, I only get the top right corner of the list in a very large size. I try shrinking it to 40% or so and it comes out the same. When I print the same spreadsheet in MS Excel (I dual boot), it comes out perfectly fine.
I'm a linux newbie - although I started using linux 3 and half years ago, I never really caught onto it. Now I'm really addicted and refuse to return to windows unless I have to. I have yet to install WINE, but I will when I have the time. I absolutely despise Microsoft and its Windows (even though I do have a microsoft optical mouse that I like a lot). From a brief scan at this site, I would say that users here are generally helpful and a friendly lot. I hope I can become a part of this community; thanks for any help that I can receive in my time here.
