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.

Hello to all.
I have a few problems with my Linux PC witch I'd like to sort out. I have an 400 MHZ Celeron, with 128 MB RAM and integrated graphics. I'm running Red Hat Fedora Core 2.
Here are my questions:
1. I can't get up2date to work. I searched this forum for a solution and found out that I should use a mirror instead of the main Red Hat Network site, but that didn't help. I run the agent, click Forward a few times, then I get a window saying it's fetching some file (can't remeber exactly what adress, something with rpmfind.com and header.info). This takes a few minutes (about 5). Then I select available upgrade packages (in total, they are 64Kb large-don't now why, seems too small to me) and click Forward again. It begins to do something, but it stops on an window saying "Testing package set/Solving interpacket dependencies" or something like that. I left the system running for 3 hours, but nothing. What's wrong?
2. I would like to make a DHCP server form my Linux PC. I found a package named "DHCP Server" and installed it, but I didn't find anything new in the system. Is there a GUI for this server, or do I have to set it up in a diffrent way?
3. As you can see, my system has a small amout of RAM. I control this machine via VNC, but the responses are very slow. I was told, that for a system with this little memory, I should use a different window manager (i'm using KDE now). The best ones are supposed to be fvwm and icewm, but I don't know which one to use, and how to install and set it up. Can anyone post a step-by-step instruction(or give a www where can I find one)?
That's all, thx for reading this and I hope someone can help me.
Hi again. Thanx for your replies. I've tryed to install icewm, but I have this problem. I followed the FAQ help in installing, but when I run the confugre script it writes:
Checking for g++, c++, gpp, aCC, CC, cxx, cc++, cl, FCC, KCC, RCC, xlC_r, xlC all with ...no
checking for C++ compiler default output file name... configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables.
