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 am learning C++ and decided to develop on linux with KDevelop. The distro I am using is Mandrake Linux 9.1, and it came with kdevelop 2.1.5-3 preinstalled. However, the first few times I ran it , whined about missing packages, all of which I have found and installed. However, it indexes existing documentation to help the user reference it during development, and that brings me to what I believe to be my final hurdle - kdelibs-doc.
It says that the path for them was not found, and that I need to install them and manually set the path to them. Aftter some searching, I found an tar.bz2 package with the docs and extracted them to a temp directory, but I knew that shouldn't be their final resting place,
so I copied /home/tmp/kdelibs/usr/share/doc/html/kdelibs to /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/kdelibs and now I think I just need to set an environment variable to specifiy the location of these docs in order to make the kdevelop indexer happy.
That was quite a mouthful, so, does anyone know the name of the path variable I need to set to finally get started developing on linux?
