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 tried using rpmfind.net but disappointed, still no result. The wine program keeping prompting me the message: cannot find xmessage. Even tried using the command ln -s gmessage xmessage, still show me same message.
A bit pissed off with this wine software. I really need some solution to get msoffice running, is there other alternatives ? (other than crossover office, vmware, etc).
Thanks for the help and advice, but really very upset cos still figuring how to load the damn windoze software.
Originally posted by whodat do a whereis gmessage .. when you find it type ln -s gmessage xmessage using the appropriate path . Worked for me .
Elemental to most of you here maybe, but I'm new to linux and never was really good with windoze either. hmm.
Problem is: how do I do that? "using appropriate path"? Could someone please give a pausible example?
I installed wine and all that is missing now is this darned "xmessage"
I have XFree86-Contribs installed but still..
thank you for your time
