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.

In my last (b)log I mentioned how fast my family adapted from Windows to Linux, and how time consuming it is to catch-up on Linux command-line jargon, GUI stuff, gizmo's, distro's and what is there not....
I finally discovered a nice website and educational program that will gradually teach me Linux. Nostalgia creeps upon me for what I have read so far. I am talking about Ian Shields LPI exam preperations: Junior Level Linux Administration, found at: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/li...101/index.html...

There were no programs available other than a dull calendar, at the time supplied on a 5.25"...
