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.

We have recently installed RedHat Enterprise Linux Workstation v3 on 2 systems, both Pentiums. One runs native, the other runs under VMWare 4.5.1 under Windows XP Pro. Both have the text of links in help (Yelp) pages displayed as bright green text on white background, which is all but illegible. If another window covers and then exposes the links or they are scrolled off the visible area then back on, they briefly switch to blue (legible) but they tend to switch back soon after. The only setting I can find that seems relevant is the color setting for links in Mozilla, but that seems to have no effect on links in help pages. This happens for both the main Help accessed from the main menu and for the help offered by various applications including Glade and others.
I have tried every theme offered under preferences to no avail.
I have googled both the Web and Groups with search strings such as
"green text" "white background" linux
as well as Red Hat's own FAQ, etc., and LinuxQuestions.org to no avail.
