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'm trying to install GNUcash on Mndrake 9.1. I downloaded the gnucash-1.6.5-1mdk.i586.rpm and tried install it. I had a zillion dependencies that I downloaded from the GNUcash site and after having installed half of the zillion dependencies, I was then told that one of the new dependencies I was installing clashed with an old one!
Getting even more bored now, I found there was this big file on the GNUcash site:
This actually installed all of the packages. Great. However, I'm buggered if I can find *where* it's installed the program! Has it actually installed it? Do I need to install something else too?
src = source, that package is just the source code, which should now be in /usr/src/RPMS/SRC/gnucash or something, but i'd advise you just removed it and found a package without src in it, i586, i686 or i386 instead
