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've seem Wine working fine once you have the game installed under Windows and then call it up on Linux using Wine. This just shows how pointless and hard to cofigure Wine is... If you are going to play games, then boot at windows and play it . Win2k takes about 600 megas of you hard drive. M$ systems are crappy but they do, work great with games, once the games are made for them. Why should I keep fighting with libraries, fighting with installation, fighting with wine crashes if the main point of a game is to have fun? . Besides, WineX is not following the "Free Open Software" thing for Linux...
There are things that only M$ does for you... to the others, use Linux

Oh yeah, don't think that I hate Wine or anything. I hope one day Wine will be good, fast, stable, userfrienly so I wont need to use M$ when I buy a hot new game as Postal 2 . Or my favorite of all Times, Diablo Series. But so far, very very very few peoples could get it to run "just ok". It's still a long way to go though and I would happily pay them if they offer a good product, not a beta test one. If it's to use a beta, slow product, then I stick with Win2k for games .
