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 have debian 3.0r1 installed and I have run into a problem with apt-get. If I run apt-get install this is what I get.

Building Dependency Tree...
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these.
Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
libgnome32: Depends: gnome-bin (>= 1:18.104.22.168-1.ximian.1) but 22.214.171.124-3 is installed
libgnomesupport0: Depends: gnome-bin (>= 1:126.96.36.199-1.ximian.1) but 188.8.131.52-3 is installed
libgnomeui32: Depends: gnome-bin (>= 1:184.108.40.206-1.ximian.1) but 220.127.116.11-3 is installed
libgnorba27: Depends: gnome-bin (>= 1:18.104.22.168-1.ximian.1) but 22.214.171.124-3 is installed
libgnorbagtk0: Depends: gnome-bin (>= 1:126.96.36.199-1.ximian.1) but 188.8.131.52-3 is installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
After this if I do like it says and type apt-get -f install then this is what I get.
