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.

Yeah, probably been asked, but I did a search-ski and found nothing.
Anyways, I installed Mandrake for about the 6th time in 72 hours because I had done an online update that had installed a most horrendous font into wine which I tried to uninstall but ended up screwing KDE up (No fixed width font). So, I reinstall everything, including wine, and finally get back to my desktop. I try to run my "test windows .exe" (AKA Chip's Challenge), and it comes up asking me to choose the program to run it... So I look in 'More Applications'. Alas, no emulator folder with Wine.
So, I looked in 'remove software', and there was Wine. So I figured, 'You're just being a bastard', and uninstalled and reinstalled it. Same thing. So I re-uninstalled it, and downloaded the more up-to-date version from a few weeks ago. I tried to install it, it looked like it was going to go, when out of the blue, I get a nice purdy error message: "file /usr/lib/libwine.so.1 from install of wine-20041201-mdk conflicts with file from package libwine1-20040813-2mdk"
It repeated this many times for each file within the software package...
Any help that doesn't invlove reformatting a 7th time?
presumebly libwine1-20040813-2mdk is the old one?
try doing a search for the WINE files and remove them manualy
