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 installed the latest version of wine for RH9 (I'll upgrade to fedora core 3 next week), and after trying to run wine I get some peculiar error message:
[chris@localhost chris]$ wine
wine: creating configuration directory '/home/chris/.wine'...
/usr/bin/wineserver: relocation error: /usr/bin/wineserver: symbol epoll_create, version GLIBC_2.3.2 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference
wine: wineprefixcreate failed while creating '/home/chris/.wine'.
This is after I already updated to the latest version of wine from an older version packaged with RH9, and updated to the newest glibc. Not sure where to go from here, HELP?
PS.. I've been using linux only for a week, so use small words please.
I think the eventual course of action will be a Fedora install. I want to upgrade anyway, so spending a week on this probably isnt a value added activity.
FYI; for anyone else who finds themself needing to open office files, search for the "Openoffice" suite of tools for linux. I've been told by a red hat certified engineer that the suite is capable of opening excel and powerpoint files, as well as word files.
