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.

Believe me I understand. I have a copy of UT2k3 and Half Life sitting on my desk waiting for me to install / get working. I've gotten UT2k3 running but it locks up ALOT. I just checked transgaming's site. Apparently winex has some issues with fglrx and is just now officially supporting it so maybe I'll have better luck.
I got Half Life installed, but when I try to start a game (single player OR multiplayer) I get as far as just before the "loading" screen normally comes up, but it sits there with a black screen and an hourglass cursor, and it does nothing.
Just so you guys know from July 23rd to last nigtht there was a VAC update that wouldnt allow wine clients to connect to
secure servers, about 95% of servers are secure. Its fixed now but if you had troubles connecting during that time give
it a try again.
hrmmm i never really hear of much problems with wine and cs...i have had cs run perfectly on a regular version of wine, and now on winex as i get more fps with winex...
as of the guy (i forget who said it) who said something about the menu and it being slow and all that....add the -toconsole parameter to bypass all the menus and go right to the console..
my launch command is as follows:
p.s. my resolution i use is 1280x1024 in X...
so i specify -w (width) to be 1280 and it guesses at height (you can pass the -h parameter for height if you want) , in which it makes it 960 so i have a little space at the top of my screen as i tell it to be windowed...which is what i want... you can ignore noipx if you wish, as it was something i use back in my windows days as it made connection to the server faster when you ignore this, so this command is just outta habit. and then the toconsole which is used to go straight to console like i said earlier..you can replace the $8 with the ip address of the server, i have $8 there as i use a game launcher from within X to launch my game so thats a variable that calls the ip address from the launcher when i double click the server i wish to join...XQF is the name of the launcher as its equivalent to HLIT or HLSW in windows which i am sure you heard of one or the other..
For your info: UT2k3 runs native on linux. just run the installer (ut-installer.sh or something ) located on disk 3.... works better than with wine / winex. for the cs guy: are you running in OpenGL mode ? Software mode locks up on me 2, though OpenGL mode is running like i was in windows
UT can also be installed native. ( which is cool )
