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 downloaded the firestarter rpm for mandrake 9.x from http://pbone.net
this is an rpm search engine type site so go there and search for an appropriately compiled rpm http://rpm.pbone.net/ (this link is straight to the search page)
i made a massive mistake this afternoon
i installed a second firewall without uninstalling the first
i completely screwed linux up and had to reinstall mandrake
like i say
firestarter caused me problems (in terms of file browsers that wouldnt open)
proceed with care

having had several problems with firestarter either crashing or
not loading or not logging i gave up
this co-incided with me moving from mandrake 9.2 back to 9.1
i have switched to guarddog which is "for" kde
with the online manuals "getting started" page open http://www.simonzone.com/software/gu...al2/index.html
i quickly set it up
and my pc has just returned a "perfect stealth mode" result at both black code and shields up
I've got Firestarter running on RH 9.0 with KDE and I am not having any problems. I am a bit of a newbie, but when I installed it, it ran perfectly. However, when I did do the install of RH 9.0, I installed pretty much every little bit of it (except things I KNEW I wasn't going to need like sendmail, apache, SQL, etc.) Just thought I'd let you know someone got it working. (Although I didn't have to do much to get it to work, just install the RPM)
