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.

What's the quality like? I've used dvipdfm, ps2pdf (awful) and a few other wacky solutions to the PDF problem but the results have been less than encouraging, especially when used with Adobe Acrobat (which is what most people use to view PDFs).
I'd guess it uses ps2pdf, unless they developed their own filter. I think I'm gonna get this app myself and give it a twirl - cheers.
Ok, took off early from work today. So after taking care of some business I had some time to play around with Scribus.
After configuring Scribus and telling it where my TrueType Fonts are I did a test and exported it to a PDF. Just some text with a graphic. I tested viewing it with Adobe Reader 4.0 and it came out very good.
I have been looking for a good Desktop Publishing program for Linux. Looks like I have found one.
