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.

Originally posted by mysterio That's pretty much what I use, maybe a little grep and find and a few others thrown in.
yeah... cd, ls, less, mv, cp, scp, tar, file, gzip, bzip2, bash builtins, etc. (oh looky, another chance to plug vi!) O'Reilly's book about these things isn't called "Unix Power Tools" for nothing. http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/upt3/desc.html
My vote would have gone for XFM, Xandros File Manager. This application is to many the central awesome app that Xandros innovates. It's easy to use, you can encode your CD directly from it, burn CDs in an easy to use GUI, FTP/SFTP, and everything else you'd normally expect from a file manager.
Originally posted by LinuxLala I believe the days of Konqueror as the favourite file manager are passe.
Well, until other GUI file managers incorporate ssh/sftp as nicely as Konqueror does, it will remain at the top of the heap. Krusader does the job, but has to reconnect to the sftp server each time the directory is changed... perhaps a trip to the ol' bug reporting zoo is in order, but it doesn't matter enough to me when Konqueror and Nautilus do the job quite nicely. It may be unfashionable to say "Konqueror is my favorite," but really, how fashionable is it to state in random company that "Debian GNU/Linux is the most important thing for" blah blah blah? I digress. Give me a GUI file manager that does what Konqueror and Nautilus are able to do, without the gargantuan KDE/Gnome dependencies, and I doubt I'll go back. When I'm not in KDE/Gnome, i just use the CLI.
