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.

Before you flame, just want to know if I can get one of the conveniences I enjoyed in IE to work in Konqueror. I liked being able to type in "microsoft" into the location bar, then pressing ctrl-enter and it adds "http://www." and ".com" around "microsoft" for me, and automatically starts loading the site. Is this ever-tweakable Linux able to do this for me? May sound lazy, but I found it to be one of IE's greatest and most used features.
Really? I just tried and it didn't work. I'm not talking about trying to resolve the host "microsoft" and then figuring out that there's a match with www.microsoft.com. I mean IE actually adds the http://www. and .com before going to that location.
Well you have access to the sourcecode. So you could always add the feature yourself.
How does Internet Explorer determine whether it should add .com, .net, .org or some other country extension? Or does it just assume that it must be a .com address? I think people's opinions vary on the usefullness of a feature like this. I personally find it irritating when Microsoft applications try to assume they know what you want.
I know what you mean, having MS second guess me drives me nuts, but that's why I like this feature. If I know it's a .org or .edu (which I only type in very rarely, as I have linuxq's.org and my university bookmarked) I don't have to do a ctrl-enter. However, for the overwhelming majority of sites, I can just type in sitename and hit ctrl-enter when I know it's a dot com. It doesn't try to force me, I'm still in charge, which I like.
Trying to settle on a browser to use in Linux is a bit frustrating. I compare to MS, and want to have a fast, java, flash, real, mouse side-button, and ctrl-enter supporting browser to name a few, but can't find one option that does it all. I have to admit that IE does a better job of this. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before things like this are worked out.

have you tried Opera? it seems that between Mozilla and Opera, every possible feature is available (actually too many features, for me)...
