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.

Over the summer I am planning on making the full transition on my main PC from Windows XP to Red Hat 7.2. I’ve been using RH7.2 for months now as a file server and using XDMCP to login and us it. However, I find myself using X-win32 and remotely using Linux a lot so I want to make the full transition.
Now before I do I need to find of programs to replace the ones I use in Windows.
NewsBin Pro – hopefully a program that has an X version and can be used from the console
Outlook Express – Use it for calendar and to sync with my Palm.
WinAmp – Something with similar look and feel. Skinning is not important

Thanx in advance
Hi. I'm not sure what NewsBin Pro is for but I'm guessing it is to read newsletters?, well, I don't know any specific program, but there is one that can replace that.
Outlook express can be replaced by Balsa. However, you sync with pilot may be limited in Linux, THAT is rather new and there is some software hopefuly compatible with your palm pilot to do sync. Also, you need to get newest kernel if you even want to attemp to do sync at all, because USB support is still not like Window's
KOrganizer is a similar to Outlook - it seems to have most of its main features. In KDE 3.1 I get help tips on startup that tell me synchronisation with Palm is possible (although without a Palm I can't confirm this). Google KPilot for more info on the Palm synch feature.
