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.

Well as it would seem I am all so close to leaving linux. Nothing installs correctly as the readme explained. I have just tried to get giFt and the GUI frontend to run Nothing of course. Then I triend to get Zinf to work noting yet again, I am all the dependencies installed the install goes all the way through. there is nothing that I can do from this stand point. It is all to very tempting to go back to windows. Anyway that is my rant for the night I am going to hop on my windows machine to relax for a while.
Yeah, there's no point coming to a website whose primary role is for people to help each other sort out problems if you're just going to tell us that you're having problems but not what they are.
Personally I think the biggest trap new users get into is wanting to install everything from packages - sure it can be convenient when it works but often it just leads to dependency hell and turns newbies away. Installing from source really IS so much cleaner and only slightly more difficult...and generally less frustrating.
Well, can you at least describe the steps you took to try to get it to work, and the associated error messages that were generated? As others have stated, random complaining isn't very productive. -- J.W.
