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.

Yeah... except Dillo's busted or I'm missing something. I just tried it and LQ wanted me to log in after I closed. I looked at my ~/.dillo/cookie file and it's writable, but empty. Crap. I don't know what to tell you now. That shoulda done it. *shrug* Oh well, I use Mozilla, anyway. Like I say, dillo seems like a real "work in progress" at the moment. Maybe try rshaw's original thing - the dillo guys say what I said should do it, but maybe you have to open it all the way up.
Any special reason you need dillo? If you want something fast, try w3m or links or lynx. Otherwise, I like my big Cadillac of web browsers.
Both dillo and the WM are FAST! But that's not all. I'm not on an old computer or anything so speed is no problem. I just love the simplicity. I don't even know where to start with Mozilla, but with Dillo the doc. is simple and effective. There's nothing i don't need in Dillo. Same with Blackbox, simple and fast. For a newbie to Linux, it sure is nice to keep motivated when i can accomplish little things everyday like changing my menu for Blackbox, or changing some preferences for Dillo.
These little accomplished "goals" are what keep me going in Linux. Step by step i win!
Yeah, I'm with you on the light wm (fluxbox here) and the little accomplishments along the way. But I've been using Mozilla since 1.0 on Windows and it's "home" to me. If it came installed on your distro, all you need to do is run down the Edit>Preferences menu, really.
But wow - I just downloaded and compiled w3m for the hell of it. This version's got some changes. Try it out - for a console browser it's pretty freaking incredible. And fast. And it started out as a pager. *lol*
Anyway - good luck with the dillo cookie issues. I suspect it is some kind of bug. I don't know what to do beyond edit the files like the docs say are supposed to work.
I just had to add a post with more about w3m. I'm surfing in console and LQ's tables are correctly rendered, the images are displayed inline, and it's even got *tabs* of sorts - a popup box of multiple windows. This just... wow... cool.
