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 been messing with linux on and off for a couple of years so I guess I know a little. I am running redhat 9 and I am looking for a IRC client that is pretty close to the feature set of mIRC. I don't really know if I want to use WINE, but if I can't find something that has the features, I will probably have to install it. Does anyone know if mIRC works with the latest WINE? Also, is there another IRC client out there for linux that is as feature-rich as mIRC? I spend a lot of time on IRC so having a good client is important to me. Thanks.
Thanks for the replies. I am using an old system due to the lack of support for my promise 20276 IDE RAID controller in the 2.6 kernel. I will take a look at what you have posted. I am sure I will work something out with it.
xchat seems like a fairly standard one, and has the usual features one would expect. It is well developed too so it should be available for whatever distro package system you want. http://www.xchat.org/
I think gaim for irc really lacks so many options. First you need an extension for nickserv commands. You can't autojoin, no scripts etc. Or is there a plugin/extension for that? Best I saw so far was bitchx. It's command line though
Though the kde ones were okay as well but kde looks ugly but that could be my themes.
