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 just installed the complete Mozilla 1.6 (I had Mozilla 1.2.1 I think it was). I noticed right off that the fonts are not antialiased when in the browser window, tabs, menu, etc. They were in 1.2. I looked in the preferences and found no way to change that. Does anyone know how to fix this?
Well, I downloaded the Linux link, untarred it, and ran the mozilla installer script. No options or anything. That's all their readme said, basically, that was in the tarball, that I remember. Mozilla uses GTK+ I know that. I have GTK+2.2.4 installed. I don't know what options I should have used for the install script. From what I can see of the script, it just runs the mozilla-installer.bin file. It really doesn't give one any opportunity to customize options, it seems. I chose the full install (navigator, email, etc. etc.)
Ya. I know. Two reasons why I didn't get it.... 1. They will have the new full (non-beta) out in a couple more days and I don't want to go installing/uninstalling/installing, etc. etc. and 2. I'm on dialup, so I don't want to keep downloading large files every day.
1) I have not the slightest idea.
2) Yes, you could build it from source. This will take a looong time (to quote DirtDart: "Holy compile time, Batman!" referring to the Mozilla build process). You can find contributed builds here. Be warned, the Mozilla FTP server is under very high load right now (FireFox 0.8 released less than 48 hours ago...) so it will be slow as heck, but in that directory you will find a few options, like mozilla-1.6-xft-gtk2-pc-linux.tar.bz2 which is probably what you want. It is built with GTK2 support (it *requires* GTK2) and XFT for font anti-aliasing.
