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 got WINE working along with WineTools. I can browse the net with IE6 etc as well as the rest of the stuff that WineTools sets up for you.
I am trying to add an app we use at work. It is basically a terminal emulation program (VT400 I think) with built in functions for reporting and printing etc. I have the installer, and I have a machine that already has it installed so I can pull DLLs etc.
First I tried to run the installer but it kept saying it required a reboot. I said "yes" to reboot and all it did was restart WineCFG. Normally, when Windows reboots, it would find the CD, run the auto run, and continue with the install. I wasn't able to simulate that with Wine.
My next idea was to copy the Program Files folder from the windows box to the "virtual" program files folder on the Linux box. When I tried to run the executable, the app I am trying to install gave me:
"Unable to Create Session Control. This could be due to a corrupt registry entry, missing file, or other irregular condition."
Could you point me in the right direction on how to get this to run?
Sorry, I misspoke (or mistyped). It is actually rrtvi955 emulation. I will poke around to see if any generic rrtvi995 exists, but I think it is proprietary. The first two letters (RR) probably stand for Reynolds and Reynolds which is the manufacturer of the client emulator and the telnet daemon.
ok, i've been doing a bit of reading.. i don't even think you need an emulator.
i think you can just terminal in to the machine with the normal linux terminal
checkout this article.. it's not exactly what you need, but it's a huge step in the right direction... read about how they connect linux machines. i'd google around for more information connecting this way
I saw that page. I also did a lot of digging on google. If the info is there, I do not know enough of linux to use it. I am new to linux and to terminals so I am having trouble understanding a lot of this. All I know is, there is a server at work (Running Red Hat) that I use a program to Telnet into. The program using TVI955 emulation. I downloaded a differnt program for windows that supported TVI955 emulation and it worked with the server fine. I don't know to what extent TVI955 emulation is used, but I don't understand why that article says you can't build a terminal emulator with Linux. Isn't Telnet using VT100 emulation? Why can't someone make an app that uses TVI955?
