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.

Previous releases of RH comes with StarOffice 5.2 (in a separate CD). u can check out Sun's archive (www.sun.com) to download the packages (yup, its free). Version 6 of StarOffice is not free (correct me if i'm wrong..).
RedHat 8.0 comes with OpenOffice which i prefer compared to StarOffice 5.2.

StarOffice is no longer free, I think you can find 5.0 still sometimes. However, 5.2 and up is not free. OpenOffice is a very viable replacement though, and I believe is made by the same people (or it seems like I read that somewhere).
Originally posted by mevans1 F where do you recommend I install it so that it can be used by all users of the machine?
in the install instructions for the site, it tells you how to set it up for
an individual user. If you follow the steps as listed, it will tell you when
to switch out of root and then you have to do a setup. I just did it
last night and it worked for me.
Distribution: RedHat7.0/7.1/7.2/8.0/9.0 SuSes 7, 8, 9, 10.0; HP-UX, Solaris
I honestly don't see why you would want to install SO5.2 - get OpenOffice. It's free, and forall practical purposes identical to Sun's product, except for a bunch of templates and examples that are missing. I use it all the time at home on my linux laptop - at work we use MFOffice - I can edit/view/print docs on either.
well...yes openoffice is free, and if you think about it, so is staroffice cause i just gave a link to it...and SO i guess we will say has an edge on openoffice, so maybe that little difference is why he/she wants to install it...i guess all i am trying to say is, if you want it, and you got it, it won't hurt to install it, even if ya have something similiar...
he he he. I don't know about Mandrake's Tools, but it sure took me a while to find a calendar application that I liked. I didn't want a browser/php type. I didn't want to use Evolution. And most importantly, I wanted it to be seperate from any window manager/desktop Environment. I have ended up using:
Favorin Calendar ( www.freshmeat.net )
Which is working out fairly well. I am still hunting down others that I might use instead, but for now, that works as I'd like it to
