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.

Relatively new user to linux. I have switched from WinXP to Mandrake 10 (yayyyyy!!!!) and I am thoroughly enjoying the freedom.
The install was uneventful and I have a fully functioning computer. This is the first time (of many I'm sure) where I've run into some trouble and I'm hoping one of you folks can give me a hand.
I'm trying to install Ayttm. I got it from CVS because I couldn't find an RPM for Mandrake. Anyway, downloaded it and untarred it etc. No probs. In the Install file it says to run ./gen before running ./configure when downloading from CVS. So I try that, but no go. It gives me screens of output, but its mostly gibberish to me. I suspect the first few lines are the critical ones so here they are.
ls: libltdl/*: No such file or directory
aclocal: configure.ac: 175: macro `AM_PATH_GLIB' not found in library
aclocal: configure.ac: 177: macro `AM_PATH_GTK' not found in library
autoheader-2.5x: error: AC_CONFIG_HEADERS not found in configure.ac
configure.ac: no proper invocation of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE was found.
configure.ac: You should verify that configure.ac invokes AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE,
configure.ac: that aclocal.m4 is present in the top-level directory,
configure.ac: and that aclocal.m4 was recently regenerated (using aclocal).
Makefile.am:33: MINGW32 does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL
Any suggestions on how to go about fixing this up so it works? Thanks for your help!
