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.

I never heard anything like that.I know a few people who have successfull working on wine+redhat 9.(this doesnt apply to me.I have installed wine in RH 9,but doesnt work well.I have not spend much time on it though..)
Ya, i checked out few previous posts in this forum itself. However, couple of them had reported problems with the version that's available for RH 9. Those guys have suggested the use of another wine distribution called the
codeweavers2002xxxx-xxxx.i386.rpm ( i dont remember the exact filename)
I guess i will be discussing more on WINE before actually deciding to install it as it has performance issues.
well both the codeweavers (which is made for office products such as MS Office and Lotus for example) and transgaming winex (which is built primarily for gaming) cost money, and the only real issue with rh9 and wine is THIS and the fix is noted there....
you also have to remember coolamit that not all things are done simply by typing wine program.exe
sometimes you have to add dll overrides in your config, or there maybe a certain way to install the certain app to make it work, etc, etc...go to my sig below and browse the frankscorner site and you'll see what i mean....
i'll just leave you with this link for setting up IE 5.5, just to give an example of what i mean..
Ya. DrOzz, you are right...things are not so easy with wine...I tried to run MS-Word 2000 and Windows Media Player with WINE but none of them worked. Winamp 2.79 is running.....but i guess XMMS is better and I dont need Winamp in Linux...
By the way, I would really appreciate, if anyone can send me a link for HowTo's for MS Word.....I have been to frank;s corner..but he there are no tutorials for installing applications.
