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.

Security risks. It is not a good practise to post real IP address on a public forum. At some point I read the posting guide lines, and it is not recommended. When you run NAT, the IP's I would post are used thousands of times by thousands of users. There is little real risk, why take any? The real IP's are not needed to solve most issues. We don't post any personal data either. Enough said.
O.K. libxml2.so.2 is installed by a package named libxml2_2 ( for 32 bit systems ) and lib64xml2_2 for 64 bit systems.
If you can get online again, try this,
Package lib64xml2_2-2.7.6-1mdv2010.0.x86_64 is already installed
My system is 64 bit. If your is 32 bit, just take the 64 out. If the package got deleted, it should install it. Give it a go, and see what happens.

Not quite sure which course to take yet. Tempted to do both using a third partition but I guess that might just exacerbate hardware communication problems.
I learnt a lot anyway.
