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 am a Linux user for about 1 month now. I spent almost every day on my PC/laptop to get everything to run and even longer to surf around the world to get all the info I needed to install different stuff.
I'd like to know what's the actual folder for the MOZILLA plugins?!
PC:P4, 40GB hd, 512Mb ram, Mandrake 9.2, KDE, Mozilla 1.4
Laptop:P3, Redhat (shrive) KDE, Mozilla-1.2.1
I am the sole user on both.
Why is it soooo difficult to install different plugins???
I managed to install JAVA which is running smooth, so I did with the FLASH/SHOCKWAVE-plugin, but I am having really a hard time to get my PLUGGER-5.0 to work, my MPLAYER-plugin, the X-MOVIE one, REALPLAYER-plugin and all the rest that would make using my boxes at least as easy and enjoyable as with other OS.
I love both Mandrake and Redhat, don't get me wrong.
I just need some good >>>detailed<<< advice.
Don't forget, I'm still a newbie, not ready to give up yet....hehehe
Should'nt the plugin .so's go in something like /usr/local/mozilla/plugins? I'm not sure about installing them to /usr/lib/mozilla. Installing to /home/<username>/.mozilla/plugins may work for installing them locally for a single user.
