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.

Have fun using Yahoo messenger in linux period. You have to use their client, available @ http://messenger.yahoo.com/messenger/download/unix.html
As to wether it allows video chat you'll have to take a look, possibly email them.
By the way, as of now, they only offer a Redhat, Debian Woody, and *BSD packages for the messenger. I got the Redhat version to work with Mandrake.
Originally posted by syklone Not sure about the video part, but Kopete will allow you to use Yahoo/MSN/ICQ/IRC ETC...

Originally posted by geekbyday I believe AYTTM will as well, but seeing as My Internet has never worked on my Linux Box I wouldn't Know!
Unfortunately not. Yahoo has changed their protocols almost 5 times in the past week in an effort to keep third party IM clients (Trillian, GAIM, Kopete, etc) from connecting to their service. Hence the enormous pressure to create a UNIX compatible client.
