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 switched Windows to RedHat 9 from Windows XP. I've been a Linux fan, though not always a user for a long time. I switched a little hastily, as I'm a web designer, and rely on my tools to build my sites.
Anyone know of a good program to run Windows programs under Linux 9? All the suggestions I have gotten were wrong. Wine won't work with GLIB 2.3, and I gotta get back up and running.
a) It's "Red Hat Linux 9", not "Linux 9", that's too vague
b) It's glibc, note the C on the end, glib is something totally different.
c) Wine does work with Redhat 9, use the RPMs from newrpms.sunsite.dk and you're going.
Alternatively use CodeWeavers Crossover. Remember not everything runs in Wine. You'd be better off using native programs, they will work better. I find XEmacs to be good.
Eh, actually if you look at my post again, it says REDHAT LINUX 9. I only shortened it later for want of repeating myself over and over. I guess it's cool if you have nothing better to do than nit-pick other peoples posts.
Sorry if you took it personally, I've not seen "Linux 9" used as a shortened form before (as that could refer to at least 3 different things). Redhat 9 is the usual form, or RH9 if people are feeling really lazy.
