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 not exactly sure, what system architecture are the binaries compiled for (I assume they're binaries since they are from MS)? Solaris machines do not use IA-32 processors (whereas most PC's do) and neither does HP-UX (I think, correct me if I'm wrong). Also, why use IE, Mozilla or Netscape is just as good a web browser and probably came with your distro. Please note that any plug-ins you might want to use probably wouldn't work in Linux anyway. In theory, UNIX code can be compiled in Linux, but I have never tried and therefore could be wrong.
I did want to do it through Wine a while back, but only for kicks. I really don't give a crap because I have Firefox and have kicked Wine out of my life since I never used Photoshop since I had the GIMP anyway.
