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.

Well market says closed for me, so doesn't look like it'll update for a while.
What browser were you using on windows? could be IE? and maybe the site uses some specific function (read ActiveX junk) if that's the case you could install wine and IE (why bother?) or look for a firefox extension that auto refreshes the page?
It depends what the problem is - best way is to try it and find out.
What browsers have you tried it with? You haven't provided this very important information yet. Note that it's very very unlikely to be a distro-specific thing; at least, if it works in one distro there'll be a way to get it working in all the others.
If you're using Firefox, you may be interested in the auto-refresh plugin, which lets you tell Fx to refresh the page every certain number of seconds/minutes.
On the rare occassion that a site did not work with Firefox, they fixed it when I reported the problem.
You can set up many browsers to report that they are something else--it's called "user agent".
Since the site your looking at was built using ASP.NET, it would be safe to assume that it was built using MS Visual Studio 7. If that is the case, it is also safe to assume that it has been built to be IE specific and will not work properly using any other browser. Even if you have that browser identify itself as IE (something Opera is particularly good at).
I find this trend disturbing in financial management sites. My bank's online banking and electronic checking services, for instance, are IE specific. I have complained, but its like spitting into the wind.
