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 cannot get the man command to work.
When I try to use it, I always get the same response:
[zeseft@Penny-~]$ man man
lines ?-?/? (END)
It doesn't matter where I'm logged in from, what user I am when I attempt to use it, or what command I specify, it always returns "lines ?-?/? (END)".
I've searched google without any luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm using Mandrake 9.1. I believe that I installed man. If I didn't, wouldn't it say "command not found" instead? In Konqueror man:command works, but I'd rather use the command line (and I can't use konqueror remotely).
Sorry about the delay.
Anyway, I just reinstalled man and the manpages, and it still doesn't work.. Perhaps the man on my CD is corrupted? I remember that it worked, at one point. Then, after an update (I'm unsure what I updated), it started doing that. Is there a place that I can get the source?
Try the Mdk website. I do know that RedHat provide individual packages, so MDK may do the same. Otherwise, make sure your urpmi sources have internet locations, uninstall man and then do 'urpmi man'. You should then get up to date correct man pages.
