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.

ok, so we fianlly installed the nvidia graphics dreiver and it works great. then we downloaded the rpm files from www.transgaming.com (yes I paid...:-( ) but now when I try and run it, it says "x11drv: Can't open display: :0.0" anyone know how to fix it?
ok can you try to and elaborate a little bit more....
are you saying winex is installed succesfully? or do you get this at some point of installation?
if it is installed successfully, then you must be getting this trying to run/install something? if so what are you trying to run/install?
sorry, I installed winex 3.1 with no problems (that i know of...no errors were given to me). I get the error "x11drv: Can't open dispaly: :0.0" when I try and run a setup.exe file from a cd. (typing "winex3 /mnt/cdrom/setup.exe", like the winex readme says to) just not sure why it won't run now.
OK, i just realized i was trying to usd a not supported game, but when i tried a supported one, it still gave me the error... just won't run winex
tried running as just a user and as root, made no difference...
Actually DrOzz, i don't think i have a wine config file. i just downloaded the rpm and installed it (i have someone here that says there isn't a config file if I installed it that way...) if i would have it you know where it might be located? sorry for the trouble.
WineX packages install themselves into /usr/lib/transgaming, and include a startup script called 'winex' in /usr/bin.
When a user runs a Windows game or application program via the winex script, a template directory called '.transgaming' is copied to their home directory. This template directory contains the configuration files for WineX as well as a 'fake' Windows "C:" drive.
The fake "C:" drive is also linked from the user's home directory as 'TransGaming_Drive'. Installed programs can be accessed through that link.
Sorry about that DrOzz i missed that on the page, and we actually had to send the computer in for a hardware problem so its going to be a few days before it gets back, ill post that when we receive the computer, sorry about the hassle and thanks for the help so far
