GnuCash is a powerful free software tool for handling personal and small business finances, but if you're not familiar with double-entry accounting, the initial learning curve might scare you away from even trying it. If you're one of those folks for whom double-entry accounting is as foreign as a Texan in Petropovlask, here's how to get started using GnuCash 2.0 to track a checking account.
