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 messed up badly
I kept getting an error with some packages and I tried to update my kerberos packages, witch needed me to upgrade my glibc packages to 2.3.4 and now I am struggling to get all of those packages I've got glibc-2.3.4 and glibc-misc-2.3.4 ok .. but when I try to rpm -Uvh xxx it tells me there are more packages needed what will I need to update everything I cannot reinstall!!!
there is just a huge problem with updating the glibc files because obviously it's going to give errors that some programs are still using the old glib files, but when I try to install the glbibc-2 files they tell me glibc-common is needed when I install common then it tells me glibc is needed :/
well my libcom_err.so.3 is fsckered. I hate this.. really I do... My box was coming along very very nicely and now its screwed I needed to upgrude kerberos and samba and all that crap and now its just a useless piece of crap, smbclient is fscked I can get inro x after about an hour of work but really.. wtf should I do im having problems with system calls not in libcom_err.so.3 and libkrb5.so.3 I have krb5 1.3.7 installed. :/
When you attempt the upgrade, it should give you a list of dependencies you need to sort out. Simply google each one, find the rpm for it, install it, and when your finished, install the glibc and krb packages.
