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.

not to burst your bubble or anything, but the cvs build of winex (from what i've heard) misses quite of bit of directx emulation stuff so u probably won't have a lot of luck with it
as for winex in general, make sure you have an nvidia card and installed drivers from nvidia.com otherwise don't bother
o, and i've never tried winex, i'm basing my words here from what i have heard from others and from things i've read myself
"play windows games on windows, play linux games on linux", as one user put it, even if u despise windows (i know i do, but i have no choice but to use it since i'm a gamer, but hopefully i can try winex sometime soon and post good results)
I've heard a number of people say they've never been able to do a good cvs build, but I've also heard a number of people say that one just has to do it right. There are web sites showing screen shots of both StarCraft and Jedi Outcast under cvs winex, some I'm inclined to trust the later.
I have an nvidia card, and I have successfully installed the Linux drivers for it.
Now I have a new problem. I had to reboot my system. Now when I try to run winex, instead of saying it can't read the config file it just says bash: winex: command not found
This reminds me of what happens to my network. Every time I reboot Linux, I have no internet access and have to reconfigure my connection from scratch. That's annoying, but at least I know how to do it. If winex somehow disappears from my system when I reboot, as it seems to have done, then I'm clueless. Help!
well i use the cvs build of winex and games like SOF2 and counter-strike run perfectly fine....i can tell you one thing though..when i installed the cvs version of winex, the command was "wine" and not winex, i have no idea why that is, but it dont' matter to me cause it works...so maybe try typing "wine" instead of "winex" and see if that is the case with you also..
I tried "wine" as the command, and now I get: wine: error while loading shared libraries: libntdll.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
It doesn't matter to me whether the command is wine or winex, but I'm curious to know why the winex command ran but gave me an error message about the config file before, whereas it's not even a recognized command since I rebooted. It's all the same to me, of course--I just like to know why things happen the way they do.
I don't know it this helps at all or not, but a while back I was looking up Linux gaming info and came across "Complete Starcraft installation and running guide for Linux+Wine-systems"... I don't know if it helps, your problems are in the installation, but maybe you will find it usefull.
no no, when it says cannot find .wine then like said above, you don't have it configured properly...which means in turn that you have to setup your fake windows drive...you can get something like winetools to automate this for you..
Also, if winetools automates something not too terribly complicated, I'd like to learn at least a little about how to do it manually so I'm not helpless if I find myself in a situation the automated tool can't handle.
