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 lately discovered that being root all the time is dangerous and must be avoided...
Trying to install (the late version of wine) however, I cannot for some reason configure the source when I run as user.
When I type tools/wineinstall from x-konsole I get:
./configure: line 88: conf5795.sh: No such file or directory
./configure: line 89: conf5795.sh: No such file or directory
chmod: failed to get attributes of `conf5795.sh': No such file or directory
./configure: line 201: conf5795.file: No such file or directory
./configure: line 949: config.log: No such file or directory
Configure failed, aborting install.
Line 88and 89 of configure is:
echo "#! /bin/sh" >conf$$.sh
echo "exit 0" >>conf$$.sh
The problems with configure seem to disappear when I manually configure being root.
Unfortunately though, the command tools/wineinstall doesn't run when i am root.
Can someone tell me how can i fix that?
Is the problem about permissions?
