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.

See 'config.log' for more details
Tom, you need to install development tools - like gcc compiler and such, start from gcc - it is on Mandrake CD's, just manipulate the rpms either from command line or use the graphical tools such as krpm or gnorpm whichever suits you best, I'd suggest command line, open up an X-term and become root with
then insert first CD into drive and mount it via
go to /mnt/cdrom
and navigate from there , you should see gcc-something.rpm try
rpm -ihv gcc-something.rpm and see the output if it complains about dependencies you should find them on CD and install them first again with
rpm -ihv rpm_name-yada-yada.rpm
Hope it helps
Oh, I didn't see you changed your profile. well, wine should be easy
should load notepad for instance. It's been some time when I tried wine, I am on VMWare right now for work stuff http://www.vmware.com you can try it for free 30-days after you either buy it for 300 bucks or you don't
Evidently you are running one of the latest releases of a particular distro. Most of they latest releases have an issue with wine which prevents wine from functioning correctly. I know redhat 9 has this problem, which is why wine(packaged with RH in all previous versions) did not ship with RH 9. Wine is suppose to create the directories and files itself, but with the latest versions, it's not creating those particular folders/files. To see what I mean, you can create the folders /tmp/.wine-tom/server-302-18368
That error is basically telling you that wine is looking for a file in those folders but the folder isn't there. Once you create the folder, it will give you another error, saying a file inside server-302-18368 is missing(no such file or directory). You can't create this file manually, wine is suppose to create it automatically. Hence wine is broken right now. My best suggestion would be to wait till wine releases a fix for this. There *might* already be a fix out, but after I had all these problems with RH 9, I formatted and installed Gentoo, which doesn't have any of these problems.
