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'm looking into possibly trying out Arch... but I can only find a very few amount of screenshots... there are non on the website that I can find... just a few random "post your screenshots" forums that have people's customized desktops and whatnot.. I'm looking for a nice selection of screenshots for Arch.. including default desktop AND customized desktops...
Originally posted by dpb ArchLinux doesn't have a default desktop. Arch is meant to be customized the way you want to, so basicly ArchLinux could look like any screenshot of any Linux distribution you can find.
exactly. kde, gnome, xfce4 (seems to be the favorite among archers ), fluxbox, blackbox, openbox, fvwm, icewm, enlightenment, windowmaker, etc. they're all there, install whatever you want.

I really like these... but I don't know how to do it.. I suppose I should probably install and try it before I say that though egh?
I'm not new.. just always looking at new stuff... I'm using Debian Sarge right now.. So I can get around pretty well.. I think I'll try it, and I'll let ya know how it it turns out... Thanks for the links...
If anyone knows tutorials on the things included on the S-shots I posted above.. let me know... BTW.. would archlinux make a decent web server?? I don't want to putiton my laptop yet.. but i do want to try it out.. Is Apache, PHP, MySQL all easy to get and use under Arch??
