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.

Since installing Knoppix last week I've been searching for applications to download. Been unable to because there are usually several associated files, and I don't understand how dependencies, libraries, etc, work yet. I finally found a zipped file hoping it would be complete and install itself as needed, but it didn't work. Here's the info:
Bitdefender 7.0/Linux 7.0 beta This beta version of BitDefender for Linux should work on all Linux distributions. It was tested on RedHat 7.0 and Slackware 8.0

What am I missing to get this file to open? Does "db3" refer to Debian?

well i'm a debian user but i hear knoppix is based on debian so i'll give you a debian way of setting things up. first i assume you unzipped the file okay
unzip <name of application>
. what you are left with is an rpm(package format). this is redhat's and a fair amount of other distros. I am guessing that knoppix is supposed to support a bunch of different package systems. if so who knows. anyhow there is a debian program called alien
alien <name of rpm>
this should convert it to a deb file(debians package format). from there an
apt-get <name of new deb fille>
should go out and get all dependencies not filled in the system. and install what is needed. good luck.
