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 recently installed Fedora Core 1, and enjoy using it a lot. Being an occasional linux user, I feel that I know the basics of getting around the OS; but consider myself unfamiliar with some the complexities of the OS. I'm looking to enter the linux scence, but haven't had the time to learn GIMP to satisfy my need for a good graphics suite. I'm very familiar with Photoshop for Windows; so just to check it out I installed the demo of Crossover Office 2.1. I installed it; loaded up Photoshop and away I went.
I played with Photoshop; it ran great. However, since loading the codeweavers package; I now recieve the error that I have some security package installed that will cause problems when running Photoshop. I click OK to ignore the error, and Photoshop fails to load. I've loaded a couple things since the time it worked and the time it didn't--just hoping someone out there may have come across a similar situation so that I can pinpoint the package I installed that caused this error.
First I loaded the latest nVIDIA IA32 drivers to get OpenGL support.
I loaded an rpm version of apt for Fedora core
I loaded the xmms-mp3 plugin for xmms
Finally, I loaded a module for ntfs support for my kernel (which I believe is 2.4.22? Not at home right now so I'm uncertain).
I almost think the NTFS patch did it. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
from the faq 18.104.22.168. Why doesn't CrossOver work on Fedora and RedHat Enterprise Linux 3?
With the Fedora and RHEL 3 releases, RedHat has introduced a new feature to their Linux. The 'prelink' facility is intentended to speed up loading of certain applications. Unfortunately it completely breaks Wine and therefore CrossOver.
We are still working to better understand the problem but the current workaround is to disable prelink. To do so, edit /etc/sysconfig/prelink and change 'yes' to 'no'. Then manually run /etc/cron.daily/prelink as root.
Originally posted by nowaydown1 That did the trick to the dime. I had to reinstall Photoshop again, but no major heartbreak there. I didn't even see that part in the docs. Left you a top-notch rating. Thanks for all the help
How fast does photoshop run for you.
I'm a spoiled Mac user who lives in Photoshop, would love to be able to use it in Linux....
