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.

Can't install Java Plugin for Netscape
I was trying to install the java plugin for netscape for about an hour and I'm tired now. I installed the packege to / directory and created a link in plugins directory accroding to the installation instructions. But whenever I do, the next time, Netscape won't start up. But when I remove the link, then it starts up. Right now, there is only 3 things in my plugins folder. "flashplayer.xpt, libflashplayer.so, and libnullplugin.so". How do I fix this thing?
P.S: It's the same with Mozilla Firefox. What's wrong with this thing? How do I install it?
Yes, that sounds like a good possibility. The Mozilla that comes with Slackware 9.1 is compiled with the gcc 3.x series and will not work correctly with a Java plugin compiled with 2.95. You need to use a 3.x compiled version of the Java plugin.
