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.

every time i start up firefox i get a message about it being a text file and asking if i want to view it or run it as an executable file. How do i make it just run without it asking me what to do every time?
I'm just guessing since I have no experience with Foxfire. But, I suggest you look to find a config file someplace for it and then see if there is any info on the config set up that will relate to the problem. Same may go for a RC (Run Command) file. Hope this helps.
You should be able to create a launcher if to launch it with the press of an icon or a button. This is pretty self-explainatory in Gnome (right-click the panel and add a new launcher, point it to the "fluxbox" script) and I expect it to be at least as easy in KDE. In XFCE4, Fluxbox and so on, create a new menu entry pointing to the "firefox" script.
if you got the tar.gz...you have to untar it, then cd into the firefox directory it creates and run ./configure, then when you click on the firefox script in the file, it will launch firefox...i haven't figured out how to create an icon on the desktop yet...i tried the drag and drop method...but it loses the path that way...
