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.

If so I'm just wondering if I've got some glitched version........because no site has scrollbars and its just a bit strange. I'm wondering if its just me or and upgrade. Though I am liking the speed-scrolling.
Originally posted by Micro420 I'm using 0.7 FireBird browser. My version is working perfect.
Lucky you! I downloaded it yesterday and it's far worse than 0.6.1 for me. For one thing, no more nice themes; can't install new themes; full-screen transition is awful (browser completely disappears and desktop jerks around a while then the full screen appears...), some features don't work.
If it doesn't get better I guess I'll have to look into abandoning Mozilla stuff altogether. I'm not expert enough to fix everything and I would like to have a browser that works.
I went to the forum on Mozillazine but the responses to other users' problems there were so outrageously rude that I'd never post a question of my own.
I might go back to Opera if Firebird doesn't improve for me. I used to use it and liked it OK; I don't think the $39 price is unreasonable if one wants to support Opera (and get rid of the not-very-bothersome banner ad which disappears anyhow in full screen...).
I'd RATHER use a volunteer software like Firebird but not if I'm going to be swearing at it as it gets worse and worse instead of better and better. I'm not savvy enough to contribute any expertise myself--if I were forty years younger, I think I'd try to work on those programs myself because I do strongly believe in the volunteer, open-source effort.
