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.

ok, this is soooooooooooooooo wierd. in root, my mozzila and Galeon run fine. i can load any page, surf the net just fine. but when i'm logged in as a user, mozzila and galeon just shutdown after they load a page. i managed to start it up, but had to hit the stop button in order so that it doesn't load any pages. no, under prefences, i have it set so that when i first load it, it comes up to a blank page. but still, if i enter any website and try to load it, it'll take time, show a few pics here and there, but then just shutdown. why does it do this? what should i do? thnx
Oops, if you still get the same problem after doing the stuff I said, try running mozilla or galeon from a terminal and see if it brings any error message. There might be a .log file somewhere too that you could check for errors
no .log files. no files with .mozilla or .galeon files. I even looked through the /.mozilla and galeon folders. I aslo did chown and chmod, but nothing. i don't understand the reason for '666'. am i supposed to replace that with something or is that acctualy supposed to be entered? i also ran both programs from terminal, but nothing was printed after that. would it be smart for me to replace the /.mozilla from <user> with the one from root?
ok, to add to the wierdness, now, when i click on mozilla icon, galeon pops up, and also, if i log in using kde desktop instead of gnome, then galeon opens up just fine, and i can serf the net. otherwise, in the same user using gnome, it just shuts down. i can't figure it out, this is totaly wierd.
