Manual online
I got myself about 500 sheets of paper here and a working printer.

Are there total online manuals I can print for both RedHat 7.3
and Mandrake 8.2?

Do you mean as in a book? Or do you mean something like: man kwrite?

just something I can print off so I'll know the ins and outs of Mandrake or RedHat or linux in general

Just so it'll cover the basics (mounting filesystems / general workings of linux / how to...)

etc etc

well try

there's no point having a manual for redhat and mandrake, they are 95% identicial.

Thanks, I'll give it a go and let you know

You can also download the manuals in different formats from the Linux Mandrake website - in text, html, etc etc......

Dunno about the RedHat site though.

Thanks very much, I'll let you know how I go

There's also the Linux Documentation project, which should have more than you need to get you started.

Argh, I need Acrobat Reader to view these files ah well I can download it

Is there any other solution to viewing PDF files? A smaller file size program maybe? (AcroRead is about 9MB to download which is around an hour on 56K) argh agh

You can read and print the manuals, in Linux, from your CDs, with the tools that Linux provides.

you should already have xpdf installed, try that. alternatively there's ghostveiw which can read pdfs but not too well.
