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.

Coudl anyone tellme how to configure flashplayer 7 . when I try to run the install scxripts it asks for th efolowing information Please enter the installation path of the Mozilla, Netscape,
or Opera browser (i.e., /usr/lib/mozilla): I try netering /usr/lib/mozilla and I get the message that this is not a directory , mozilla is installed in the default directory in my slackware 9.1, I do not know whta thsat directory is.. I would apprectiate help with this problem.
I suggest you browse into your /usr/lib directory and check for the exact name of your mozilla directory and use that in place of the one in the example above. If you have already done so and it doesn't work then, I don't really know what the problem could be.
No you don't have to specify the plugin folder. One thing I have noticed is that when you upgrade Mozilla, some distros don't delete the old folders and leave it with a few entries. Flash won't install unless the mozilla folder has a full installation and it automatically places the correct files in the plugins subfolder of the mozilla folder.
delete the current libflashplayer.so and flashplayer.xpt. once you have done that, install flash player and I think it should work. the reason why it's highlighted in red is because it is a link pointing to something that doesn't exist on your system.
