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.

hi, Im relatively new to linux and Im using suse 9.3. I installed unshield via rpm and when I try to run it via the terminal on a cab file (from a driver installation) it fails. I tried the same file with cabextract for microsoft cab files and it said the file was a install shield file. I tried lots of different options but it doesnt matter what it does. It blankly says it cant open it. I'll have to get the specific error tomorrow morning, but its not very helpful. ive tried a ton of stuff to make sure its being pointed at the right file etc, and Im sure its looking at the cab file.
I basicly cd-ed to the directory containing the cab file, ad then:
unshield x data1.cab
Ive tried entering the complete path, and also using *.* as the filenameafter which is points to data1.cab and tells me it cant use the file. argh.
Can anyone help with this problem? When I compiled it gave me errors with zlib, so I had to use a rpm.
Alternatively what would work is a windows version of the program.
