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.

Here is what I'm looking for. I simply want to be able to have my updater linked to a site which has just about every itty bitty thing out there for updating Linux. When I find a new little gem I'd like to install, I'd like to be able to simply click on it and install it. If there are other packages needed....THEN BY GOD THEY ARE DOWNLOADED TOO! If this is possible...Can someone please for Pete-Sake help me to get it going before I lose what little sanity I "might" have left?
I would recommend using the http://rpm.pbone.net website. If there are dependencies, the list of dependencies listed are links to where you can find them. The site also uses java to examine which dependencies are satisfied and which you need to install.
Not sure why SMART isn't working for you but keep it mind it is a beta project.
As for the updates. I never could get 10.1 to load. But they did put out an update for the update software. Lots of bugs in the new package management system. Personally I'm sticking with 10.0 as it is more stable.
