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.

Take a peak at RKH's SF CVS stats and you will see that activity picked up again. Currently the RKH 1.3.5(-dev) Changelog (rev1.119) lists 16 bugfixes, 13 new items, 14 changes and counting.
It was a bit sad to notice some of the existing signatures were incomplete though. And while everyone knows breaches of security "the old school rootkit way" have dropped to nil, RKH aims to be complete. So I'll be replaying rootkit installs again and working on improving rootkit checks...

Thanks to all contributors who made this release possible by providing code, submitting ideas, bugs, fixes, documentation, testing from CVS, helping out on the rkhunter-users mailing list and promoting Rootkit Hunter.
Even though it's a given by now, the project wouldn't be going anywhere without John Horne...
The team will be releasing RKH-1.3.2, which will fix aprox 10-ish bugs, RSN.
I thank all the contributors on our rkhunter-users mailing list and all who submitted bugs and patches to our bug tracker. I thank John again for his dedication and work on RKH and Aus9 for his work on the RKH Wiki page at LQ, documentation and persistence in general. I also like to thank the anonymous crowd that managed to D/L RKH from SF over the months. (I still find it weird that if you look below the...
We're looking for developers who have C/C++, experience developing applications on POSIX-based systems and an understanding of shell scripts, work together as a team and who can dedicate time on a more or less regular basis.
If you want to help develop Rootkit Hunter or like more information please contact me.
My sincere thanks to all who made this project and this release possible: the Rootkit Hunter project team, all contributors and testers, all RKH users, those who kept nagging us for a release, Linuxquestions.org, Sourceforge for unfaltering support and Michael Boelen for providing RKH and relinquishing control.
