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.

Alright... so I'm running Linux (been doing so for about two days) Fedora 9. I'm currently trying to use Wine to launch World of Warcraft but whenever I do it inverts the screen and freezes, forcing me to restart my computer. It does launch, but I can't get past the login screen. I've tried running "playonlinux" but that plan is currently grounded with a lack of information (The entire thread for that is here http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...h-wine-666719/ ) I've also inquired as to dual-booting Windows with Fedora ( http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...l-boot-666724/ ) and that honestly is turning out to be a flop because I'm not exactly computer literate when it comes to Linux. Anyways, if anyone can give me and kind of help, perhaps answering a question on one of the other threads or answering me here, it would be fantastic. Please and thank you.
Alright, I started following those instructions and I ran into the dumbest problem I can possibly think of. I got down to the part where I'm changing DirectX to run on OpenGL and I go to access my program files, only to learn that I can't access the C drive with Nautilus.
How do I fix this annoying problem... I'm going to try something in Terminal, it's probably not going to work.
Drive C: should be in a location like this.. /home/username/.wine/drive_c
What are you trying to accomplish with the "open" directive ?
you told wine to run a windows program called open and it told you it couldn't find that program. wine open<ignore the rest> C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft
The correct command to launch wow as stated in the wiki would be this... wine "C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\WoW.exe"
