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.

I started with StarOffice 5.2 when I first used Linux. It was a drag on that poky machine. When OO 1.0 was released I heard the news at 0830 and found a relaxed server somewhere in the world and had it installed on my whole network by noon. There were a few nasty bugs, but lately it is serving very well in schools and offices where it gets a heavy workout. I have introduced hundreds to OO and you should, too. The only reasons not to switch to OO is that compatibility with the universe and an investment in macros locks one in. Both arguments are short-sighted. The lock-in gets worse, not better, with time. The time is now to switch. 2005 is the year of the great FOSS migration: Linux, Apache, Mozilla, LAMP, OO. This leads to a bright future. That other OS is going nowhere. Those who limit themselves to that other OS will be at an economic disadvantage very soon.
