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 just took a class on sql, unfortunately, it was Windows-centric, which means I have to figure out how to do stuff in Redhat by myself.
By installing mysql via yum and then running pirut, I find there is an interface type program called MySQL-python-1.2.1-1.x86_64 so I installed it but I'll be danged if I can find any information on how to actually run the thing.
What is the command to start MySQL-python-1.2.1-1.x86_64?
Distribution: Deb, Mint, Slack, LFS, Fedora, Ubuntu(LXDE)
I would also suggest MySQL Administrator, MySQL Naviagator, and MySQL Query Browser. I do most of my work in Query Browser. For a good understanding, though, you can't beat initially working on the command line, before going to an interface.
Thanks for the advice, unfortunately the text book I am working from does everything from an interface and it is a rather easy textbook to understand, which is rare enough. I don't have much interest in winnowing through man files and what-not that are not organized to my immediate needs. I'm not really planning on being an sql programmer, just using it as a tool where it is most appropriate for my work.
Well, there are a ton of dependencies for mysql-workbench. Maybe I can get something that works through wine. I really don't want to increase my knowlege through reading tons of man files and searching and searching dependencies. I have a problem I thought mysql could solve but I am beginning to see that it might be worthless.
