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.

HI THIS IS MY FRST PosT I AM VERY NEW TO LINUX I ONLY CAME TO LINUX ON A FRIENDS RECOMENDATION. i have so far learned little. I on windows used paltalk quite often, it is a voice chat service i use to stay in touch with my friends who moved to texas, i tried making paltalk work on linux through wine and made the proper DLL overrides etc-got that from franks corner website. can u please tell what i am doing wrong beacuse i cant hear or talk to any one on PALTALK. i love linux just cant get the right stuff to work on it
i have managed to get paltalk to run on mandrake by using wine. the platalk download was on my windows partition and i copied the program over to my linux partition. i then opened up the paltal file and clicked on paltalk.exe and opened it using the wine program. i can log on to paltalk and enter the different groups. i can view the cams but i cant see the chat text in the room all i have is a blue box there. i can hear the sound in the rooms though. Any sugestions on how to fix it would be appreciated
you dont need wine because teamspeak is a program as good as paltalk
it works on linux and windows
the server is free without PUBLICITY and registering
yesterday 10000 independants servers were running in the world
it is a pity this programm is not known enough
it is used mostly by gamers
and by windows users but that is changing http://www.teamspeak.org
Not long ago, I found GAIM, but have ***NEVER*** gotten sound to work with it. Further, there are supposedly some updates or whatever for GAIM to work with paltalk. I have **NEVER** gotten those to work either.
I am really frustrated with all of this.
If anyone has any input on any of this, please let me know.
