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.

Well, thanks for the tip, but naturally I know how to find out if I have an executable in my system, or not. That is why I dared to mention that I do not have "make". (After all I have been using Linux for three years, now...)
My problem is that I got used to the fact that make is there "out of the box" after installation of SuSE, but this time it is missing.
And I do not know what to install to get it.
I do not need the exact designation of the rpm with version number, just a rough designation (name) of the rpm to point me into the right direction. It does not matter if your distro is not SuSE, since the package name will be possibly similar in other distros, too.
Noone will be surprised: the name of the rpm is 'make'...
I did not find it because SuSE GmbH did not find it important enough to put it on the first installation CD (the only CD I have), and it was not among the packages I downloaded from their site previously (or I accidentally deleted it).
