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.

Screem is good - http://www.screem.org/
SCREEM is a web development environment. It's purpose is to increase productivity when constructing a site, by providing quick access to commonly used features. While it is written for use with the GNOME desktop environment in mind it does not specifically require you to be running it, just have the libraries installed.
as well as Quanta Plus - http://quanta.sourceforge.net/
Quanta Plus is a web development tool for the K Desktop Environment. Quanta is designed for quick web development and is rapidly becoming a mature editor with a number of great features.
I have just converted to Linux (mandrake 10.0) and struggling to find a decent editor. I used Dreamweaver 4 on Windows but not sure if you can run this through Wine.
The Mandrake distro came with Screem, Mozilla Composer & Quanta Plus. Screem won't even load, Mozilla Composer looks rather poor and couldn't even seem to deal with PHP files when i had a brief play with it. Quanta is the pick of the bunch, but I was not impressed with the WYSIWYG view (or VPL, as it's called on Quanta)- it just didn't look at all like the actual finished product and didn't seem very interactive, whereas Dreamweaver always gave a pretty good idea of what the browser would actually see and you could click and drag and do pretty much what you liked.
I may check out this Bluefish. Are there any other recommended editors out there?
Distribution: Mandriva 2006 & 2007 Power Pack Club
Captain hero what variant of linux are you using that uses rpm files? Did you try installing it from the command line and give the force option to your variants install software? For Mandrake it would be I believe:
# urpmi -fv package-installing.rpm
I would believe it is simular for rpm manager too.
OK, I couldn't find Bluefish on my distro, but I got a copy for Mandrake 10.0 from www.rpmseek.com. I worked fine - I didn't even have to use the -force option. The program comes up ok, but I haven't tested it out yet.
