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 installed the latest versin of acrobat reader for linux (506) on RH 8.0 and when I run the command :
I get the following error:
Warning: charset "UTF-8" not supported, using "ISO8859-1".
and the program doesn't run, any ideas?
thanx in advance
Hah, I believe you have to hunt it to the kernel. In kernel configuration there is support for Unicode character set, it should be loaded as module or builtin, this is in filesystem->native language support.
Or just run it from a console (xterm, konsole, you name it). Alt-F2 is a KDE specific thing. There are many different pdf viewers under Linux: xpdf, ghostview, kghostview to name just a few. You don't even need the Adobe stuff to make pdf files under Linux. Have a go at the other pdf viewers, they're really quite good!
Thanks to dwains and the rest who helped me get Acrobat Reader 5 running under Red Hat 8. You are great.
One advantage of Adobe's PDF reader versus otherwise fine readers like xpdf or kghostview is the former's ability to search PDF files for strings. Another is the "Fit Width" and "Fit Visible" viewing modes, which tend to produce reasonable size type automatically, without any need to zoom.
