O’Reilly Network: Installing Nautilus

“When the O’Reilly Network editors decided to test Eazel’s
Nautilus preview release, they first had to find a machine they
could pirate for installation. As it turns out, I had just pirated
such a machine myself for web page testing and for getting familiar
with Linux on a day-to-day basis.”

“I’ve always felt a little uneasy about my dependence on
Windows. And how could I work at O’Reilly and not at least
experiment with open source operating systems? So I welcomed the
project to install Nautilus. As a relative Linux newbie, it sounded
like just the thing to get me going.”

Maybe you’ve also been wondering how easy (or hard) it is
