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 just installed Gaim (version 0.68) on my machine. The installation went well. However, I didn't remove the old version first. And, to make matters worse, I uninstalled the old version as well as removed the shortcuts. Now I can't re-install the new version because it says all packages are already installied !!!!!! Where is it? I looked in the file:/usr/bin folder and it's not listed. So where is it?
Sometimes people do funny things in a moment of frustration. Hence the subject of "Hhhhheeeeeellllllppppp!!!!!". But that's exactly what I needed at the time and it just felt appropriate. (please note that this too is written with a hearty sence of sarcasm and a GREAT deal of restraining from further comments on MY part). Thanks for the replies. I finally figured it out thugh. Still, I keep getting the old "xxxxxx was disconnected. Could not read" error when connecting to yahoo services. If you can find it in your hearts to forgive me for the subject line, I still need your help in getting this issue resolved. Thanks.............ALAN

There's another post here somewhere, but Yahoo has closed it's door to GAIM and MSN will be closing it's door to GAIM also on 10/15/2003 I believe. Basically it's not GAIM but Yahoo and Microsoft closing doors on GAIM.
