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.

Hello, still very much like this site, and learning much about the uses here.My question now may seem a silly one, I give the reason why, now>
I am from the UK Essex England, and been using your site and very much enjoy it. But problems which I guess a easy to sort out, for most.............but me!
I have two problems which I would like some help please!
Can you tell me how I go to enter my email account into you main site. Really I am asking a easy question I supose, as my personnal home email service. I am now using your software.
Plus another question I need help, the are a few sites I used on Windows XP series 3.........which needed plugs, the website would appear, but I was not able to enter that chatroom server.

And I so much enjoy this soft too run my PC., this is the full message...........A pluging is needed to dispay,and this is what it says:
"A pluging is in needed too display this content, install pluging: http:/clento.sigmachat.com"
I agree with acid kewpie. You are mixing things up at a very basic level. Can you please give us a step-by-step account of your problem. Take it in easy steps and try to be as clear and detailed as possible about what you are trying to do and what problems you are encountering. Avoid vague labels like "your software"; what software? Give the name; and "you[sic] main site"; please give the URL of this site. Do you mean www.linuxquestions.org?
I couldn't find the URL http:/clento.sigmachat.com, but www.sigmachat.com appears to be a Java-based chat program. Perhaps you don't have Java in your browser? Look in the plugins section of whatever browser you're using and see if it mentions Java. If not, you can install it using your package manager. How to actually add Java as a plugin to whatever browser you're using depends on the browser. With Firefox, you can make a symlink from Java's libnpjp2.so file to Firefox's plugin directory, which is system-dependant.
As far as I know, Linuxquestions doesn't offer email service for people. To send email with Linux, you can use a free provider like www.gmail.com (easy) or run your own mailserver (more advanced).
