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.

Ok, a new chapter in the saga of PDA synchronization at my place.
I can't get evolution to sync with my wife's Visor. It syncs to the PC via a USB port, and the evolution sync software doesn't recognize the USB port.
I downloaded the RPM file of Jpilot. I downloaded the .src rpm first, as the website described the .i386 file as for RedHat and I use SuSe. After running RPM on the src file and getting nothing, I went back and downloaded the .i386 rpm file. I then got into root and gave the rpm command with -qpl to list the files inside the rpm. After seeing all the files, I ran it with -i to install the rpm file.
I had created a file called /jpilot in root where I was working.
(did the pwd command to be sure).
After running the rpm -i command, I gave an "ls" command to get a listing of the directory's contents. The only file that was listed was the original i386.rpm file.
What do I do now to get this program to install and show up somewhere?
How do I get the Palm sync program to see USB ports?
In follow-up, I tried to install this rpm file using YaST2. I gave the directory where the i386.rpm file was located during the change source command in YaST2. I also turned off the CD route.
When I clicked install software, the CD source that came with SuSe is still the only one that shows up. I can't get YaST2 to see the other location.
