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.

Hi, I've been using Mandrake 10.0 Official for three or four months now and am still trying to set some things set up how I want. I think I've finally got over the need to set Mandrake up to work exactly like WinDoze but there is one thing I need.
I'm not 100% I'm going to explain this right so forgive me if i ramble;
Imagine you have a long list of links on a web page and you need to check that each link is working. In windows i would select the first, then use the backspace button and simply TAB to the next without using the mouse, then hit enter to select.(and repeat) But Opera (or any other Linux browzer as far as I can tell) doesn't work like this.
Is there anyway I could set Opera to work like this. To be honest, i'm just being lazy, sitting with my right hand on Backspace/Enter and my left on TAB is much easier than moving the mouse around, but it's not the end of the world if not,
Sorry, what I meant was use the TAB key to move to the next link, enter to follow the link, and backspace to go back. I didn't say it like that though did I.
It's what the TAB button selects and passes over that I had the problem with, for example, on the 'Post Reply' page on LQ there is 'Post Reply' then smilies and text parameters and all sorts. using TAB jumps straight from 'Post Subject' to 'Your Reply', whereas WinDoze would select every radio button for a smiley in turn, Bold Italic Under line . . . etc.
I think i've pretty much sorted it under Opera tho, the Ctrl + X function does pretty much that.
