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'm on Red Hat 8 and would like to know how to update mozilla. The version that I current have is 1.0.1 and I would like to update, but i'm not sure which version to get. On the Mozilla download page do I get the RPM or the other x86 one? And how come that Red Hat Update Service tool thing doesn't detect this? Thanks.
Yep, I did register. There are a bunch of other packages on the update list, but not Mozilla.
I download a file called mozilla-1.2.1-0_rh8_xft.i386.rpm and tried to install it but I got an error called package not found. It listed Mozilla in the list, which is odd because i'm on Mozilla 1.0.1 right now. Thanks.
I copied the latest version of mozilla (i.e 1.4) and now after I went through their nice installer it installed in the default /usr/local/bin/mozilla directory..which is all nice. But it didn't worry about actually removing my older redhat installation which is in /usr/bin. For now, I have just put the /usr/local/bin/mozilla directory in front of the /usr/bin directory to start the latest mozilla, but how do i uninstall the older version? Also, if I now uninstall, would it mean that the newer version would have some dependency problems?
The latest is version 1.5. Debian 3.0r1 comes with 1.0.0 so I'm planning to upgrade as well, not least for the pop-up killer. The only problem is that 87% of my 1.2-GB Linux partition is already used, and I don't want to repartition my hard drive to give Linux a decent amount of space.
The bad thing about Windows NTFS partitions is that they have "unmovable data" at the beginning and end of the partition so you can't shrink it too much without losing data. Alas, that means I'm stuck with about 100 MB of free space for Linux.
