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 have to no avail to use KPackage. I have Kdeadmin installed, and when I cd to the directory, the KPackage directory is there. Yet, I can't seem to find it anywhere. I have tried typing "kpackage" in the command terminal, nothing. I have read that this is easier than trying to use the command terminal, although I have had relative success with it. I have searched the threads, can't find any advice on how to get kpackage working. It is not in the system tools folder, or anywhere else.
Okay, so I kind of messed up. I first downloaded it, then moved it to the /usr/local directory, then installed it.
So, after your direction, I deleted it, had it downloaded again, put in /home/Ray directory. Then, in a command terminal, I ran (as root) tar xvfj (it is tar.bz2 file) to open it. it installed a directory of kdeadmin in the /home/Ray directory, with all the subdirectories. I tried "./configure" no go. I cd to Kpackage directory, same thing. I tried "kpackage" nothing again.
I'll bet you are just about pulling your hair out with these newbies. i'll keep working with it, but again, i am having little trouble using rpm or tar in a command terminal. I was having problems before, came to this site, and discovered I did not have gcc compiler installed. Did that, and what do y'know, rpm works.
