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 new to Linux, and also this forum, so I am not sure if I have posted this in the right place, but I'll give it a go anyway. I am looking for software that will wok to quite a specific criteria.
To be clear, I want photo album software, but not just any photo album software. I want one that will make individual albums, and let me define categories, and add details to photos, like names, dates etc. More than that, I want it to be stylish, with the feel of a real physical book-like photo album. i use Lifeographer to keep a journal, so something with that feel would be perfect!
Security would also be good, as I would like to be able to password protect certain photo sets. This is not essential though. Neither is the ability to edit photos, beyond maybe rotating them.
And I definitely DO NOT want anything web based, not even uploading to a secure site. Having the option is fine, but I want all my pictures and documents on my hard drive. It would also be nice if individual albums could be stored as stand alone files, which could be e-mailed and vieed in their original format, obviously with the right software to view by the recipient.
If anyone knows of any software that fits this criteria, I would be absolutely thrilled and most grateful to hear about it.
If I am being too fussy, and asking the impossible, also let me know.
Thanks for all your input! It seems Fspot is quite popular, so I'll give it a spin and see how it goes. As for Picassa.....well, I boycott all google products on principle. But thank you for your suggestions
I use startpage.com and Yahoo. I used to use AltaVista too. I am a little dubious of Yahoo at the moment, because of the past talk of deals with MS, but I am pretty sure they can hold their own against them, for now at least.
