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.

Distribution: Debian, edition depends on what i run it, wheezy on main box.
have tried dead-rat linux from 6-9.0-from fedora i am off it.
proben mandrake and suse ,turbolinux and -at last -when know things better moved to>Slackware
and must say :"slack owns ,it gives me exactly what i want, in way i want and when i want".
if other distros makers will make all explanations as clear and short as they are in slack ,m$windooz is gone.
So i just go slacking.Clear things are good ones.
just installed slackware 9.1 and WOW. i tried SW a couple of years ago, but was too new and jusst couldnt get it right. the install was flawless and the configuration went perfectly except for the lilo setup, had to go back to add my XP partition manually. X worked like a champ, had to re-do my mouse settings to get the wheel to work and XFce is awesome! i had been using mandrake and redhat like a lot of former windows users, then tried suse 8.2 and i too had trouble with yast. slackware rules!
Ha, a nice point, or maybe more people post problems because more people use slackware. I don't think anyone would seriously stick with a distribution that kept giving them problems. I think most slackers will back me up when I say that once configured, slackware gives one of the smoothest rides possible... And not a dependency error in sight
