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 installed RH8 and like another post I saw, by default the PHP install does NOT include MySQL support. I try to use phpmyadmin and it tells me I don't have the mysql extensions installed. As this is the most rediculous thing I have seen yet on dealing with linux, I cannot get it to work on reinstall.
Steps I have taken:
Uninstalled the default PHP rpm from RH
downloaded the tar file from php.net
Followed the instructions on php.net of how to install, using --mysql support.
10. ./configure --with-mysql
12. make install
If you decide to change your configure options after installation
you only need to repeat the last three steps. You only need to
restart apache for the new module to take effect. A recompile of
Apache is not needed.
13. cp php.ini-dist /usr/local/lib/php.ini
You can edit your .ini file to set PHP options. If
you prefer this file in another location, use
--with-config-file-path=/path in step 10.
14. Edit your httpd.conf or srm.conf file and check that these lines are
present and not commented out:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
LoadModule php4_module libexec/libphp4.so
After I get done, I add the lines to the httpd file that the PHP install instructions tell you to add....but I don't have the file they say I should have (libphp4.so). I have no idea what to do and frankly I'm getting sick of it. I have searched the system drive for that file and it doesn't even find it. I know it's my "inexperience" but this shouldn't be so f@#$ing hard to install. Sorry for the frustration, but shit like this should be a breeze to install and work with. I thought it had been around long enough so I wouldn't have to jump through hoops....I guess not.
