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.

View Poll Results: Windows on Linux App of the Year
the support at netraverse is great, not to mention the product, works fine for everything i need it to do, and at a reasonable price. I tried VMware, and I liked it, but you just cant beat win4lin's price.
I listed my uses for Win4Lin/Windows but realize that I did not give
my rationale for choosing Win4Lin over other solutions:
I think wine's a great idea whose time has yet to come for my purposes.
I couldn't get wine to work. I put too much time in for too little
satisfaction. Almost working isn't working. Crossover Office is
clearly for MS Office fans. I like Excel and dislike (intensely dislike)
Word. Crossover doesn't seem likely to support WordPerfect any
time soon. I doubt it will ever support my camera's format conversion
software or my scanner's twain driver. Intuit's ill-advised adoption
of a DRM lock on TurboTax last year required the folks at Netraverse
to quickly react and put out a Win4Lin response to that lock. They
were typically superb under fire and have my thanks for letting me
do my taxes under TT under Win98 under W4L under linux. Lots of
layers working seemlessly.
VMWare is technologically terrific but the last I heard things
don't work at near-native speed. The cost makes it seem more for
someone who needs to run multiple Win-versions
including NT-based OSs. Ideal perhaps for developing or testing or
reproducing tech support issues on different platforms or somesuch.
I don't play games so I don't care that Win4Lin is not a hot gaming
Well it used to be Wine, then I upgraded to Fedora. Idiot security patched kernel, I tried the fixes, they all fail miserably. I could try other things but why the heck should I pay to run Windows? Is that not lame? Pay to run the most annoying OS out there? Iyiyiyiyiyi... Oh well, maybe RedHats working on a fix.
