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 tried the startx and it works like a charm. Thanks! However, YOU can't seem to find the automatic update stuff, and I don't know what packages I need to make that bug go away. I have internet access, but YOU can't seem to find its default download server. Any ideas?
I tried the startx tip, and it worked like a charm. Thanks! However, once I log in and try to get my update patches from YOU, it tells me that it can't find the server. I do have internet access, but YOU can't seem to connect to a server. What packages do I need to get rid of the startx login bug? I'm running 10.0.42 currently.
I think one of the bottom right icons is to log in with a German web site for updating the patches. If you can get to the Internet the patch link will work automatically. The site will interrogate your Suse and load the appropraite patches. Just a couple of clicks to have the whole thing done in less than an hour in my case.
Novell tech support just informed me that there is no fix for my main issue posted above.
Therefore, I'm stuck using an alpha release until something better comes along. Currently, I have 3 major problems:
1. OpenOffice crashes every time I try to open an OpenOffice document I copied over from my other PC
2. None of my Mp3 files play; amarok just cycles through them really quickly and does nothing; xmms does nothing at all.
3. SuseWatcher cannot find the download server so that I can get updates.
