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.

win32sux, Hold on, I will try your suggestion.
But, the link that you provided, takes me to a page, where I see a package to download the "IN DEVELOPMENT" Firefox Version 1.0.4-2.
Still, I will download it.

amit@ubuntu:~ $ sudo apt-get install mozilla-firefox
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
mozilla-firefox is already the newest version.
You might want to run Ďapt-get -f installí to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
ymessenger: Depends: libgdk-pixbuf2 (>= 0.13.0) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libssl0.9.6 but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try Ďapt-get -f installí with no packages (or specify a solution).
Yeah, before that I tried to install ymessenger, exactly in the same way as told by yahoo, but got a similar message.
win32sux, I have downloaded the package you have mentioned already.
Should I go with it?
I can try both the methods.
But will that UPGRADE my Current Version of Firefox?
With installing the .deb package that I have downloaded as per win32sux's instructions, this is the result.

dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
okay the dependancies for the package aren't met by your current system... you'd need to add a repository to your sources file in which the proper version dependencies reside and then use "apt-get install mozilla-firefox" to download and install firefox along with the needed dependencies onto your system... i assume you should just add the sarge repository, as sarge includes firefox 1.0.4 AFAIK, but i'll let a debian person give you a better answer, as i don't have much experience with debian...
