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 downloaded ./configured and make and make installed k3b, no probs.
But how do I start it??
Tried k3b in a terminal, get "no such command" There is nothing in the menu.
A nice frontend that works would be nice, I've tried Gtoaster and CDwriter. Both don't work.
(note: the upgrade is 2 - not just -, so its - - without spaces!)
If u seem to have problems with dependencies, u can FORCE an install of the repm (I HIGHLY RECOMMEND U DO NOT DO THIS), but for some programs shutting up rpm so it gives no dependency errors can be useful.
to force an install do
rpm -ivh --nodeps /path/to/rpmfile.rpm
also note: nodeps has 2 - (- -) before it.
Of course u need to be logged in as root to do an rpm install of anything
By The Way,
SuSE has a very nice RPM install option, as part of their YaST package. You might want to try SuSE out (I use it and love it)

I c. I bought 7.3 a while ago too. Things have improved a lot since 7.3,
Redhat remains to be quote-unquote the "standard" distro here in the United States.
I cannot stand redhat myself. I tried it and I tried mandrake (several releases) and I did not like them.
I would recommend SuSE to anyone who wishes to try it, but I appreciate the freedom to use whichever distro you like best.
Anyways, Let us know how the K3b thing goes for you
