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 can become a hero if I can figure out how to make those stupid videos play from TMZ on a Ubuntu 8.04 64 bit. Have installed adobe flash without any luck. Is this a 32 vs 64 bit problem with the only solution getting rid of 64 Firefox and re-installing a 32 Firefox?
They play fine on a 64 Suse 11 installation from a 64 Firefox.
I can't even touch anything flash with my 64 bit debian. There are a few solutions... but they all are a pain in the a$$. I really wish someone (achem... adobe...) would spend some time working on a 64 bit solution for this. It is 2008 and 64 bit OS is here to stay.
After updates from Ubuntu...they requested a re-start...which I did. Assumed that would be the only re-start needed...wrong. When I found that TMZ and Youtube played fine but videos from CNN, MSNBC, ABC etc did not..I, in desperation, decided to re-start the system ONE MORE time. It worked.
Oh...the Linux learning curve....I've been at it now for 3-4 months and find crossing new Linux frontiers is beginning to be fun. Sorry if I've taken up too much space here but a 70 year old geezer..with too much time on his hands...is having a ball.
