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 need some help though, especially from Debian users. One of the things the script does is sniff the distro, and then list all officially installed packages based on that information....
Well, I have updated my personal site, including adding all the code I have written. Some people may find it useful, so go get it at <a href="http://badcomputer.org/unix/code/">badcomputer.org</a>
So far I have:
<li>A script to grab kernels from kernel.org</li>
<li>A script that grabs (almost) real time stock quotes</li>
<li>A script that cleans comments and blank lines from config files - useful...
