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.

My procedure of install is: get Windows .pak files and .cfg files, copy it into a directory in linux, then i use the installer of idsoftware pointing to the directory where i putted .pak files.
After these steps i have upgraded the binaries to the version 1.33 but i have many problems.
First of all my configuration: Ati Radeon 8500, Red Hat Linux 7.3 with customized (by me) kernel, FireGl drivers from Ati version 1.4.3 for XFree 4.2.0 (mine); Tux Racer works perfectly.
Now the problems: with binaries 1.1b of RTCW i cannot change resolution, only a 640 windowed i can use; with 1.32 binaries i can change resolution, but i have some 'tilt' problem in the screen; with 1.33 all goes well, but there is a strange thing in my mouse: under the 'OPTIONS' my mouse locks itself and i must restart the system with a reset; it doesn't work CTRL-ALT-Fx, CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE, ALT-PRINT SCREEN-B; neither works :-(((
Another problem is the console: i cannot open it under Linux: i have also resetted the keys (in the files .cfg located in my home directory), but nothing, also if i set for example the key 'L' to open the console: nothing. The tilde key is perfectly configured in X and also the backslash, because in the graphical programs i can use it and all works fine.
