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'm having problems installing Unreal Tournament 2003. I change to su in a console (SuSE 9.0) and run sh /media/dvd/linux_installer.sh an End User Licence Agreement appears in the console window and nothing else. Where do I go from here? I REALLY need to get this working as its now my last bit of software I run under Windows. If I can get this going I can fully wave goodbye to M$.
when i installed ut2003 i copied the installer to the harddrive
and executed it from the command line as root, with disk 3 still in the cd drive
(it goes through the disks in the following order - 3,1,2,3)
(as far as i remember it worked ok - i didn't stick with suse too long as it crashed a lot and kept losing the nvidia drivers)
As long as you're not running the installer from within the CD mountpoint you shouldn't need to copy the installer to your hard drive.
As for the issue with the license agreement, that's displayed in less. Use your arrow keys to scroll through if you want to read it, or press Q to cancel. When it goes away you'll be asked if you agree to it.
You may get a permissions error when it attempts to launch a graphical installer as root....you can ignore this, as the installation will successfully run without the graphical interface.
Distribution: Mandrake 10.0 Official, Freebsd 5.2.1 mini
I know this isn't probably the best place to post this but, I am also trying to install ut2k3 on mandrake 9.2 i get console warnings about gtk version too old. I installed 2.3 and it still says gtk version too old. Plus, when I agree to user agreement it prompts me for "play disk". No matter what cd I put in, I prompts with the same message over and over.
I've got ut2003 installed now. copied the install file to hard drive first. However.... quite poor graphics performance (I have the nVidia drive installed Tux racer etc works great) and very distorted sound. The sound is also slightly speeded up!!! is this a sample rate problem or something else, any ideas folks?
