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.

1.) I am currently running Red Hat Linux 9. I tried to set up my printer (HP PSC 1210v), but am having trouble. I did not see my printer model listed in CUPS (I believe that is the program). Therefore I went to Linuxprinting.org and downloaded a *.ppd file. I then followed the steps located at linuxprinting regarding foomatic setup.
I went back into the printer configuration tool and still do not see my printer listed. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?
2.) My mouse moves slowly across the screen. Is there a way to change the speed settings? When I go into the mouse configuration tool (I don't select anything) and click OK. It seems to speed up. Why is this?
3.) I am trying to connect to AOL using Penggy. When I try to install Penggy it says I am missing the following files:
I read in another forum that these files are included in an older version of guile. I tried to install the older version of guile and it says there is a newer version already installed. How do I uninstall the new version of guile? I looked in the Package Manager but cannot find it? Is there a command to uninstall it?
I am a complete Newbie to Linux so please be detailed in your explinations. Thanks
