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 trying to connect my canon power shot usb digital camera to gphoto. However, gphoto does not support usb as far as I know. I saw that there is a program called s10sh that is specifically written to overcome this exact problem. The only problem is that at the site it only offers to download the source code. Can anyone please tell me how I can install this on my computer using just the source code. Thanks!
Well most likely the source code is in a zipped tar file. Once you extract it in the directory where the file was extracted there should be a README or a INSTALL file which will tell you how to build it. Usually something like:
You need to make sure you have a compiler installed and the make tools before you can build it. These should all be included on your installation cd's as RPMS or other packages.
