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 downloaded and installed yahoo messenger form yahoo.com and as soon as i install it get to see the yahoo messenger window. But once i close it logout and login again and try to execute yahoo messenger i dont see the messenger window at all. ne Pros out here help please..
┐? try "ymessenger" at the command prompt, it should work fine, are you trying to execute it from an ymessenger icon? check if it is actually executing yahoo messenger, (right click --> properties--> Aplication check where it says command, it should say something like this: /usr/bin/ymessenger
or wherever you installed it
if it is still doesn┤t working, uninstall yahoo messenger, and install it again
...and let us know if you found a solution. There is precious little out there on the net about how to correct these problems. One more "I fixed it", especially on LQ (which Google combs every few minutes, it seems) would be a good thing.
In the configuration where it asks whether you want to add shortcuts to Gnome and KDE, I unchecked all four boxes and that got rid of the "Segmentaion Fault" error. You can always add these shortcuts manually later.
