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 have just unzipped a tar.gz file for the first time. from what i've been reading there should have been a few files (like a help file or an install file) that unzipped to a new directory, instead i have one - and it's a .pl file (its the obsidian fserve 0.9.2 for xchat 2.0.4). can someone please help me understand exactly what it is i have to do with this file to install it, or point me to a stupid simple guide.
Thanks a lot for your help so far. yes, there was only one file that unzipped into a new directory, and i think Azmeen is right - it has to run from xchat. if you have the time or patience i would really appreciate help getting this installed from xchat. or if you know of a manual or something that would be great, as i have not found anything yet.
please? if this was windos i would have figured it out by now (actually i did in about 10 minutes). as far as i know, this is the only fserve app for xchat and there is barely any documentation on how to set it up. if someone knows about linux and the apps and add-ons that come with it could you please help?
i thought about doing it, but since i have not found anything saying what to do i was not sure. i'm just scared. i'm not used to having the power of linux, i've only been doing this for a week or so. i will try it, i hope it works.
ps DrOzz you've been really helpful to me on more than one occassion, i appreciate it. i'm going to post some new stuff in a minute that i'm sure will be no problem for you, if you feel like helping again. thanks.
