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.

I'm a new user and have installed SuSE 9.3 with Gnome as the Xwindow system. I've been trucking along fairly nicely, but have started running into problems installing RPMs. For the first while YaST would open right up and let me install the programs, but lately it hasn't been working. More often then not, nothing happens at all. I try double-clicking, selecting and hitting enter, and right clicking->Open with YaST but still nothing seems to work.
Is this a common error, or just one that I'm plagued with? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Well this happened to me a while ago. The power went off and before it went off I was working in YaST. So when the power came back I switched on the pc and went back into YaST, and the package manager just hung. So I looked i /tmp and found these YaST* folders, I then deleted them and all was ok. Everything went back to normal. I don't know if this well help you,but that's how I fixed it for myself.
