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.

Yes it was the text page explaining the shell, I can not answer your question on Mandriva, I was using Suse and then I tried PClinuxOS and they both come up the same. I will check it out in Mepis in just a minute and if it is different I will repost. I am using Firefox on all three, I have not checked the versions.
i have no idea what happened ..... I just clicked the link that I put in the original post and it comes up properly .... i did that befor and it did not ....
I rechecked the typo thing again and again ....... at the very first i noticed that the address i used had www in it and the page i wanted did not so i took that out and it still came up wrong .. i compared what i typed by copying it and pasting it along side what the real address was and it looked the same .. i say again !
it works now ... even though time after time it did not before ... and all i did was click on the original link again.
very strange but i swear it was redirected somehow
