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.

Today I decided to modify my system to boot to runlevel 3 instead of 5. I installed Lynx and Pine, so that I can check my email or look something up on the Net quickly, without having to wait for X to load, and then Mozilla to load too.
I want to make it so that Pine will let me read the messages on the University's server <mail.msstate.edu>. However, I want it to leave the messages on the server, so that if there is something I need to save, I can download it with Mozilla Mail and deal with it. So I guess what I want to do is setup Fetchmail to log into the server and copy the messages into my mail folder, then use Pine to read them.
Distribution: Slackware 10, Fedora Core 3, Mac OS X
Actually you don't need to set up fetchmail. You could just use pine in pop mode (it does stand for Pop Imap Nntp Esmtp). The trick is to go into pine>setup>config and then set the inbox-path= to something along the lines shown here: http://www.ii.com/internet/messaging/pine/pc/#pop
Obviously, doing it this way stops you from using fetchmail and therefore, procmail, spamassassin and vipul's razor for spam filtering/reporting and mail sorting.
