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.

Just FYI I tried installing gaim from RPMs but it has too many dependencies like some spelling library etc... i tried installing all of the dependencies but it was just worthless wasting my time over it.
lol yeah it did let it go finally. I think a folder was open showing CD content, closed it and it let it go, wierd for me but maybe it's the way linux works and i'll get used to it.
As far as the messenger goes, can someone convert that readme file to plain english? I mean if I can atleast get messenger installed i can work on linux all night and not get cut off from world. Of course I could use my other PC but it's not exactly near me.
And to be honest, I know what you're thinking about me right now, a n00b. I do the same when people post on my forums with questions of the above level.... I won't mind anything.
