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.

My favorite things to do with my spare time is to work with Arch Linux, FreeBSD and XP as I wait for Windows-9 to be included. Over the weekend I installed FreeBSD 9.2, for the first time using portsnap and subversion to install X11, Gnome and Virtualbox. I had to reinstall multiple times because I ran into a few problems. After four days, feeling like forty night I learn that VirtualBox-ose would not install because I only had a 2GB swap. I woke up just-in-time to see the “OUT OF SWAP SPACE” compiler warning. So I wiped the disk once again an made a 4GB swap!!! I think portsnap and subversion are awesome.
Now that I know how it works, I’m doing it again to night, but this time before I install Virtualbox I hoping that someone can provide the details of how to install Virtualbox in jail. I plan to have my first jail built by tomorrow night. Until than I need to ask a few question.
1- How do I install the entire Virtualbox in jail and use it under my host FreeBSD box which will be running desktop Gnome. Windows and Linux are guest?
2- How do I install all the daemons in jail and the rest of Virtualbox under desktop Gnome?
3- What are these daemons and why should they be jailed?
4- If both ways are known to work, what are the benefits of one over the other, or are the results the same?
