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.

One frustrating aspect of printing in landscape mode in Linux is that the pages come out "backwards". That is, right end first.
The disadvantage to this is that I have a ton of documents that are half pages (they get made up into booklets) 8.5 inches high and 5.5 inches wide. The documents used to print out in Windows with the printed part (on the left half of the page) first. This worked well.
But under Redhat 7.3 (first without, now with CUPS) they print the other way round and the last bit doesn't print because the margin is too narrow and the printer doesn't want to print so close to the trailing edge of the page. Truth be told, it worked fairly well before I switched to CUPS. But now the problem is quite noticable.
It seems like there must be a setting somewhere to switch landscape printing to come out left-side-first. But after much googling I have learned more than I ever wanted to know about printing under Linux -- but no joy on the "backwards" landscape mode printing.
