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.

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.

by the way... all the configuration for wine is in txt files...
do you remember notepad in windows? thats basically the equivilent to your control panel in linux, redhat does come with alot of admin guis made for you.. but please remember that all these do is edit a text file and run a few commands in console! nothing more!
back in the day all configuration was dont by keyboard....
basically think about it like this.....
your mouse has 3 maybe 5 buttons if you're lucky
your keyboard has over 50
you have ten fingures...
one is more efficient

Probably a dumb question on my part, but did you mount the floppy?
Of Course....I ran wine install and it started doing something with the file...it got to 100 % and took me to a prompt.....I quess it installed the program, where would it put the program if it did work...i looked in the directory but, no program...YES, my floppy is mounted...
