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.

Kernel 22.214.171.124, Slackware 12.0
Mozilla Thunderbird 126.96.36.199
I have just typed, using a GUI mail client (or the graphical front end of a mail client) the text of a letter and am about to send it. Before I do so, I'd like to see how the letter will look to the recipient. But I can't find anything similar to a 'Preview' button.
The client I use is Thunderbird. What do users of mail clients (graphical) do in a similar situation? I mean "to preview", when writing. Form among all mail clients, many must share the same features.
In that case, maybe checking on what email clients come with "minimalist" linux distros such as Puppy Linux or Damn Small Linux may be useful. I think those distros should run on your setup, no?
I hope so. I a matter of reading the system requirements. On the other hand, may be the Mozilla site has an Archive section, where I could find versions intermediate between that presently in my machine and the current one. Right now I am trying to switch from Mozilla Thunderbird to the SeaMonkey mail client which, besides, I think has the virtue of being a light weight program. Thanks for your feedback. Adio,
As for what it's going to look like: that will widely depend
on the recipients mail-client; you really shouldn't spend too
much time on wondering, or, if the look is very important, put
the e-Mail inside a PDF.
