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 just got my computer last week, and I'm learning Linux Ubuntu and loving it so far. The only problem I seem to be having is that my browser window closes on me from time to time. It happened twice yesterday, and once today already. Anyone got any ideas? (I have qwest dsl)
Ok Interdictor, I followed the instructions, and it worked perfectly. My browser no longer crashes. However, I've lost sound when I try to play videos on youtube! Not only that, but now when I open my browser, it doesn't start on my default page which is google. It opens two tabs at once...one is export.gov and the other is Xorg X11 and Transparency on the Wiki help website! WTF!! Help!!!
It seems to be a problem either with Firefox or the Flashplayer 9. I reinstalled flashplayer, and now I can't open my Hotmail again. I've got sound and video, but I just get an error message when I try to go into hotmail. Ethics, how do I run it in terminal? I want to try that.
