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.

Ok, so those of you who are using SUSE these are my questions:
1. Can you fax with no problems using a word processor and print to fax? or how do you do that process?
2. Is there a CAD program that functions with SUSE such as Autocad?
3. Is there an accounting program that can read Quickbooks files?
If the answer can be had for all these questions in the positive, then Windows Dual boot may no longer be needed in my case.
Thanks in advance for any questions answered.
Since SuSE 10.0 is out I'd be looking to get that instead. There are a number of companies that will sell you cheap CDs if you can't download it.
SuSE 10 has about 4,000 programs on the CDs and I believe I saw a CAD program or two. GnuCash will import Quicken files (is Quickbooks the same format?) and, I think, YAST2 will help you set up faxing. SuSE has good support for Winmodems, but YMMV.
SuSE is one of the best distros out there, so give it a try!
How am I going to read DVD to split? A friend would do that for me. However, since it is Christmas and the family wants to know what to get me..... DVD-RW here I come. Now I just have get the fax thing fixed.
