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'm trying to run some Linux programs under Lindows 4 by double clicking them in Konqueror and it is telling me it can't find that executeable I just clicked on. Trying the same thing under RedHat or Mandrake has always run the program. Any ideas to what the deal is?
I have tried Blender (runs great under RedHat, but "Can't find Blender")
I tried to run InfoNES, "Can't find InfoNES"
I tried to run sNES9x, "Can't find sNES9x"
Everything I try, it does that. All these work very well under RedHat, where I pulled the files from (after setting them up there).
so you compiled in redhat and are just copying over the files to another linux distro partition?
typically that is not a good idea, since the compiled programs build themselves to adapt to that specific distro's environment; it is best to recompile the program in the new distro and then copy over settings files (many of them are located in ~/.programname, ie zsnes is compiled separately on all my distros, but i use the same things located in my /home/user/.zsnes/)
