    I recently installed Mandrake 10 on my laptop (bye bye XP) and I don't get it.

    I have tried installing stuff (my only success was with rpms, even then it's sketchy).

    Can anyone recommend any good books on understanding linux? I'm looking for something a bit deeper than the "for dummies" books (though "C for dummies" has saved my ass a few times).

    What is it you don't get?

    And how are you trying to install, and what?

    Books, well, the best thing i found is use it as much as possible and use http://google.com/linux (yes, that is the right address), and search for any problems you have.
