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.

They match up just fine. Quanta is an html editor, so you have to know how to use html. It won't draw tables and stuff for you. Gimp is a great program for graphic design. Unless you are a "pro", you not really need an expensive application as Photoshop to make logos. The best way to see if it fits your needs is trying them out. As you did not specified the distribution that you are using, I don't know if you distribution has quanta and the gimp on the CD's or not. But I bet the gimp is in there, as most distros has the Gimp. Check the Gimp here:
I find the Gimp really odd and quirky, but it is pretty capable. I don't think it matches up to Photoshop by a long shot, but I also know that most people use only 10% of PS's capabilities. I don't think there is an equivalent of Dreamweaver or Frontpage on Linux. Quanta Plus is an HTML editor, like Megaman X said. If you're used to Dreamweaver's visual tools, you won't find them here, but IMHO those tools are not very great. Learning HTML is not a very difficult task, and it gives you a lot more control in design, but more importantly it makes editing pages later on much easier. For the life of me, I can't figure out some of the code Dreamweaver comes up with. You should try it out for a while, and see if it works for you, but be ready to accept a slightly different way of doing things (esp. in Gimp as opposed to PS).
do they have programs similar to kazaa? really all i do on the cmp is AIM, music, and photoshop and dreamweaver...what ur saying about quanta sounds fine i know html java very well, but the gimp sounds sketchy b/c unfourtunitly i use more then 10% of its options ;/ i dk. maybe windows XP is the best thing for me right now
