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 recently recieved Icewind Dale 2 as a gift. So I decided to play it, I opened up WINE only to be dissapointed. To make long story short, I installed XP on one of my unactive partition on my hard drive. Well my Linux boot loader is gone, and I cannot figure out how to get back in. I would use a boot disk but I do not have a floppy drive. So there is the issue at hand. I recently upgraded from 7.3 to 8.0 in hopes that it would reinstall LILO but... alais it said at the end of the installation "No RPMS have been installed boot loader will remain the same"...
The two can be installed together, they are forks of the same project, so WineHQ can run some games, and WineX can run some apps, but you have more success when you match each one to the right type of program.
Hopefully WineHQ will someday have good games support, but we lost a lot of time thanks to TransGaming <sigh>
Thanks Mhearn! That is really helpful to me. Now I know to download 'em both. Also, what is the diference between OpenGL WINe and unstripped WINe? Is OpenGL just the OpenGL plugin for regular WINe? I didn't realize they could be run together either. Where does WineX come from? What site?
