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.

Transgaming is deserving of cash. Its 15 bucks for 3 month subscription. It is in my opinion that if you can afford a computer then you can afford $5 bucks a month. Otherwise learn how to use CVS by yourself.
Distribution: Mandrake 9.1, Slackware 9.1, Windows XP
they prob do deserve the cash for it,
im new to linux and am not comfortable with it yet
plus the only reason i tried it was because doesnt cost $
once i am comfortable and have faith in it then i will prob put some money into it
but as for now i cant just take someone on the internets word that linux is the best thing ever
you don't actually open it....you use it to run windows native programs/games....
so for example, lets say you have a game on cd, and to install it you have to run setup.exe, and if thats the case then an example of what you will do is open up the terminal and type winex /mnt/cdrom/setup.exe...
again that is purely an example...the executable may not be winex, it might be simply wine (if you got cvs version, which its usualy like that) or it could be winex3 or something similiar....in any case, once you find what its actual executable is, then the above example still stands true on how to use wine(x)..
