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 haven't done it yet. Planning to do it later tonight. Will keep you updated. BTW, which distro are you using for the install? RH or Mandrake? Coz', I think I have heard some complaints about installing on Mandrake (some version or the other -whether it be Mandrake or Dreamweaver). But, I am not sure about it.
Hey....good for you. As for me, I got stuck in the installing DCOM thing (95 or 98 - I downloaded both). Got some errors in both. I guess I must have done something inherently wrong with my installation. I couldn't seem to find some files as suggested in the how-to at Frankscorner (even though Notepad worked). I am looking into more documentation. Any tips ? My eyes are buldging out of their sockets and I am basically
As for you, go - have a beer or something......
As as DCOM goes - I installed it and seem to remember an error at the end. It could be an idea to install the WineTools utility. There is a button for installing DCOM. You definitely need all the dlls - the link I posted doesn't supply all of them so googling is the way to go (unless you can extract them from a Win95/98 cd). I tried to create a desktop shortcut, but that fails - I can only call it from within a terminal. Otherwise it all seems to work. Yay me!
Thanks for the reminder. I had already downloaded Winetools too....but forgot to use it. I'll try my installations again later.
But I still say, you have got to go out and have a beer.
.....after all, you have already had your share of wine.......
Yooo... hooo......... I made a royal #$%*&@# mess to my xconfig. The installation of DCOM still didn't seem to work. Winetools made things a lot easier. Got a lot of "fixme:...." errors. But I just went ahead and and installed Dreamweaver (thinking, maybe its because of the missing dlls and I can put it later) and then that other file (as given at Frankscorner). Of course, it didn't work. Then my connection was down for the night. So I thought I'd make another fresh start in the morning. So I uninstalled wine, deleted all wine-related dirs. and files - then shut down the comp.
In the morning, booted up, there was no X. So I went to the configurator, entered the values etc.... when I started x, it said a window was busy and so it opened another window and x started fine (as root). I fine-tuned all the x values to normal (like I use it). Seemed to work fine. So I rebooted, started x as a normal user. And it gave me the same error and wouldn't start x.
Now the problem is solved. How ?? Right now I am reinstalling the whole thing again.
No regrets - coz' there was a lot of junk (read misconfigurations) that I played around with. I forgot to back up important files (in this case the xconfig). I am a newbie and trying to get round my way through. Well, just make sure you got a back-up too !! I am sure it had to do with the installation of DW because I never mess around with display settings and I didn't use any other programs too.
Just out of curiousity, would you know the reason for that problem - about the xconfig thing?
(anybody who has been following this thread is welcome to provide some insight)
Stop !! I am turning green with envy.
I have another problem now, but its not related to wine or DW. So I guess I'll have to start a different thread now. I'll get back to the installations after I solve this problem.
