The Complete Idiot's Guide to Linux, 9780789721969 (0789721961), Alpha, 1999
Complete Idiot's Guide To Linux, Second Edition, covers: Preparing to install the system, Using shells and online documentation, The X Windows graphical interface, Networking and Internet, Administration, Configuring Linux for multimedia , and A guide to available software and tools. If you have been wanting to get started using Linux, but are not sure how to go about it or have not made deep inroads into your installed system, you'll benefit most from this book. In addition, the step-by-step guide to standard Linux tasks will satisfy your need to utilize the system's capabilities, especially its Internet functions.

This book is a gentle introduction to Linux, and as such, it is not intended as a comprehensive guide. On the contrary, great effort has gone into this book to keep it from becoming yet another comprehensive reference guide. I’ve been selective about covering the topics you are most likely to use early in your Linux hacking career.

One of the interesting things about Linux, and UNIX in general, is that learning new ways and tools is almost an endless task. There are many tools—too many to cover even in several “comprehensive” volumes. Much of the comprehensive and exhaustive reference for Linux is readily available in various forms, some of which will be installed into your computer as part of the installation process.

In contrast, this book focuses on how to make you self-sufficient. It teaches you two ways of working with Linux: using the X graphical environment (with KDE) and using the shell, the command line interpreter so closely associated with UNIX. And, if you are managing your own Linux computer, there are some administrative tasks that you need to learn how to do.

So how is this book organized? Installation and first-time configuration instructions are located in Appendix A, “Linux Installation.” Appendix B, “OpenLinux Compatibility Guide,” provides you with an up-to-date list of the ever-growing and ever-changing list of hardware that is known to be compatible with Linux. While mapping your installation plan, you should verify that your hardware is listed and known to be compatible with OpenLinux.

The Middle Ages: 500-1450 (The History of Medicine)
During the Middle Ages (ca. 529-1100), the rise of Christianity had a definite effect on the practice of medicine. Pope Gregory (ca. 540-604) stressed the importance of prayer over medicine, and over time that sentiment became pervasive. Each time a person was healed, it was considered a miracle. The church taught that since God sometimes sent...

Software design is a fledgling discipline. When the “software crisis” came to be acknowledged during the late 1960s, software development projects have been marred by budget overflows and catastrophic failures. This situation has largely remained unchanged. Programmers still create poorly-understood systems of monstrous complexity which...
