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.

Recently, on a trip from Philadelphia, I picked up a Linux magazine for some reading on the train. One of the articles was about the Phoenix browser. Interested by the article I downloaded and installed phoenix and I am very impressed. It doesn't have all the over-head that mozilla has which makes it much quicker. Anyway I love it. So I imported my mozilla bookmarks to phoenix and decided to do away with mozilla entirely. I removed all the installed rpms by doing a series of:
rpm --nodeps -e mozilla-devel
rpm --nodeps -e mozilla-chat
All the rpm packages are gone but I forgot that I just installed the newest version of mozilla from source. So I started the cumbersome task of deleting all these mozilla files and directories by hand. This is just ridiculous. I've been deleting and doing updatedb for a while now and it seems like mozilla is in every nook and crany of my system.
Is there an easier way to get rid of all mozilla files? Maybe a bad a$$ command that will locate every file and directory that has the word 'mozilla' in it and delete it.
Danger levels are high. Should I go for it with such a wild command?
That is very interesting Chad. I've never heard of that package. Unfortunetly, once you untar the new version of Mozilla there is a simple little 'install-mozilla.sh' script that pops up a GUI and does all the dirty work for you. When I was installing it I thought that it was the greatest thing since sliced bread. Of course there is no 'un-install-mozilla.sh' .
