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.

in order to install KDE 3.0.3, do i have to erase 3.0.2? i downloaded a couple of the rpms, but there's dependencies because 3.0.2 is still there. 3.0.3 is suppose to use the same files and directories....
well you upgrade and not install. there are much newer rpms available for gcc than that though, why do you want to upgrade by that tiny amount? presumably when you upgrade you weill need update the gcc-c++ and glibc packaegs among others... well.. upgrade them... there's no benefit in having 3.0.2 adn 3.0.3 side by side if that's what you were thinking
Try installing using the "upgrade" feature rather than "Install" them.
If you are at command line:
rpm -Ivh filename.rpm Is NOT what you want;
rpm -Uvh filename.rpm IS what you want.
Good luck, and I think you are really wasting your time, going from a barely released version to a barely released version, there won't be much of a difference. If I were you, I'd wait until 3.1 comes out. But this is not meant to stop you from getting it going your way, that's part of the fun right?
