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.

as digiot points out it should be ln and not In, and to save you a possible moment of consternation, you need to do ln -s followed by the existing file, then at the end, put the name of the new link file. see man ln for more detalis.
[The tab did not work for phoenix BTW]are you using the 'bash' shell? when invoked as 'sh' i don't think it does tab completion.
I'm a huge huge fan of galeon, so fast and simple and flexible, but the new gtk2 branch is no where near as competent as the current stable, 1.2.10. I've been looking at firebird (formerly phoenix), and it does seem to be blatantly copying a lot of galeon's good features, so I may well be moving over to firebird when galeon 1.x stops being developed....
i find the nightly binaries to be a little less stable than the "stable" versions unsurprisingly, i heard about another browser called "Beonex" by the way, it is trying to be netscape, but it is an open source browser based on mozilla. In fact i dida quick write up of some open source browsers if anybody's still interested in which one's best et c, although i did miss out dillo from the list, which i will need to include now i've remembered it.

oooh my 9000th post... i should get out more....
Galeon is very nice but why do I have to have Mozilla installed in order to use it? I understand it works off the gecko engine but so does Firebird and you don't need Mozilla to run that.
