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.

OpenOffice.org Writer has recently started crashing when I try to save anything. Save As..., Save, Save to Template -- they all instantly crash the program. OpenOffice.org also automatically starts up every time I re-login to Gnome. I killed all the OpenOffice.org processes before restarting, so I don't know what's causing it to start up automatically and then crash whenever I try to save things.
I recently installed a new Chinese input system, SCIM. I also recently had to delete an overgrown .xsession-errors file (450MB and growing when I deleted it). I also have several core dump files (the ones with the little bomb icons, right?) in my /home/me file. Are those normal? I've been deleting them, since they're quite large -- 45 MB, oftentimes. Is that okay?
I'm using OpenOffice.org 1.0.2 under Mandrake 9.1 with Traditional Chinese/Taiwan locale on my 350 MHz/256 MB RAM system.
I can't think of what other information might be relevant. Are there any files I should be posting here to give further clues?
How do I get OO.o working normally again? What am I missing?
