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.

Thanks dudes for this helpful thread. I recently made the jump to current (13.37), and after making my system multilib enabled I went straight to build the latest dev. version of wine (as of this writing 1.3.14). Attempting to load winecfg resulted in the terminal spewing out all kinds of crap regarding missing dx11 stuff, and libuuid.so.1. I realized (just like samac), I too only had the 64 bit versions of libuuid installed.
Anyways I was surprised to see that massconvert32.sh did not pick up util-linux-ng. According to the changelog looks like util-linux has been upgraded:
at this point I could have just installed the converted util-linux-2.19 package, however I opted to reinstall. I realized after looking at the changelog that I rsynced with current 2.14, a few days before 2.16 changes where committed. My install was as of 2.13 changes. I figured I'd do it right and make sure I got all the new shit (may as well, we're going current right?). So, installed w/ current, and this time when I enabled multilib I had the converted util-linux-2.19 packages in a-compat32/ . Winecfg loaded w/o a hitch. Haven't had a chance to build any applications yet, but I'll report back after I try building FalloutNV. (Offtopic: for those interested, I have a writeup on how to get FalloutNV running posted on winehq appdb. I recommend giving it a try!)
