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.

Typed startx - startx not installed.
So ask if I wanted to install, yes I do.
Typed startx - directory not there - aborted install
created directory - another not there.
So I'm guessing I need to create all the directories not showing up.
Plus it says error in locking Authority file.
I will try to work my way through this install, but sure I'll be back with more issues.
I just want to add that this site is a great forum for newcomers.
Or should I just buy Linux for Dummies, because that's how I feel, real dumb.
I'm getting the same error with "apt" command as I was with startx.
X: cannot read /etc/X11/X symbolic link invalid argument, aborting.
Anyone have any clues to what I shoudl do next.
I thought maybe changing permission to file, but how do I give permission to the system? This all happens before I logon, shouldn't the system have the permission already, if that is the issue.
I will continue to look for similar problems on forum, but if anyone may know something right off hand I would appreciated your help.
Thanks in advance
