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.

My question is this - how is it ethical to take something from the community, and sell it for a price to unsuspecting customers? Surely somebody who's new to Linux is not supposed to know any better, and seeing "XP" in the title and the familiar...
I was personally very disappointed and disillusioned when I tried to install Fedora 14 on my system (1.5GHz Pentium 4, 256 MB RAM). The installer said that my system memory was too low for it to run. Anyhow, after some tinkering with the text based install - which doesn't offer much partitioning options, by the way - I was able to install it to my system. And that's when I was pleasently surprised !
First of all, let me clearly say that Fedora 14 outperforms both Fedora 11 that I...
