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.

Is their some sort of Money/Quicken program for Linux? My dad uses Win ME (nothing worse) with not much memory and it would be nice to put linux on it. only problem is that he needs money/quicken and has an existing file in money he'd need to convert or whatever. thanks!
Gotta add my vote for GNUCash. I used MS Money for about 2 years, and had quite a lot of account info to import into GNUCash. After exporting each one from Money, importing into GNUCash was a piece of cake! I've been using it ever since.
- Simpler and more logical to use
- Hard to install, unless your distro provides it
- Lack of support for bill scheduling (newest versions have it tho)
- Graphs and reports aren't quite as nice
Pretty much what it comes down to is that MS Money is a complete finance manager, whereas GNUCash is mostly just a glorified checkbook register. But if that's what you need...
There are a couple other (I hear) good programs out there, including Kapital (commercial) for KDE, Moneydance, Gnofin, etc. Try a few out and see what you think. It kind of depends on what your dad needs in his finance software. I kind of miss the bill scheduling from Money, but for the most part if checkbook functionality is all you need, there are plenty of good substitutes for Money or Quicken.
Will gnucash work in all distros, or is it only for specific ones? I was looking at the site, and the only downloads are for specific distros, all of which are older versions than what I have. Or am I just a rock and not seeing it?
