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 have installed wine (from Wine-20031016.tar.gz) on my computer, then i installed MS office 2000, it went fine (at least it seemed to be), anyway, when i opened the MS Word, it opened and then the following showed up,
"Required registry information is missing and this application cannot run. Please return setup to correct this problem."
can anyone share some light on how to correct this problem?!
i have got open office 1.1, as well as kword and abiword. however, whenever i use open office writer or others to save documents to windows format (doc), the doucments would change slightly, for instance, something i typed in the orginal documents would be missings or the position of the body would have changed. i dont see its a big deal myself. but sometime i would have to send the documents to others and the documents dont look professional.
The best way to run a window application under Linux is to use VmWare 4.0.5 . I have installed that application to run all of my windows applications without restrictions and also make my windows update without problem. But they are some restrictions with multimédia device depend of Linux system used...Here i run this windows virtual machine ( Win Me ) with mandrake 9.1.
I have tested CrossOffice and Wine with bad results...It's my opinion....
