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 browsed many forums looking for a way to get a better font rendering with displaying pdf files. (so that they do not look falky... when reading with gs, ggv, or whatever).
Let me quote someone who sumurized the pb :
<< I have some target machines running Linux Red Hat v7.3 and 9.3 and the machines appear to be having a problem displaying the correct font when one Acrobat file is opened for a read operation. Display of incorrect font makes the text file essentially unreadable for user. This problem does not appear to be consistent with different PDF files on the same machines. >>
I am investigating fonts, as I am suspecting that "ghostscript" does not have enough Type1 fonts to render the eventually refered fonts from the pdf file.
As i you print a pdf including ttf fonts without any chance for the viewer (ghostscript, or ps, or gv) to acces to the description of the fonts.
I would appreciate if anyone could confirm (or not), and could give some advice. This is painfull here...
