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.

(This is my first attempt at writing some sort of how-to, if anything is unclear, please let me know!)
This was more of an exercise of "can I?" rather than "is it really necessary?".
At work, there are some PCs with Pentium 4 processors (32 bit) and others with Core processors (64 bit). I have Debian Live on a USB stick, and I got to wondering, rather than using the lowest common denominator (i386) if I could create a Live image using both architectures....
I had an old Fujitsu notebook with W95 as OS with 2 partitions on it C:for OS; D: for Data. toguether a 5 GB HDDD.

This laptop has two problems, one is that there is a bad sector in HDD, which I hopefully has isolated when I made the partitions and a problem with memory.

Spent a few days debugging what I thought was a bizarre kernel bug on a RHEL 6.3 box. We had crash utilities installed and I'd gotten incredibly comfortable with analyzing kernel crash dumps. I can also say that I'm intimately familiar with a few features of the Linux kernel that I didn't even know existed before.
If you know much about kernel debugging, you probably already know the fix (due to the subject line). See, when you analyze a kernel crash dump, you get certain information,...

The system is a remaster of Ubuntu 13.04 - codenamed "Raring Ringtail", released on April 25, 2013. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity 7.0 (Ubuntu). I have added LXDE, Mate 1.6, Razor-qt 0.4.1 Cinnamon 1.7.4 and XBMC 12.0 (An award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub for digital media) as alternatives, so that everyone on the spot (during live operation) can compare the different six Desktop Environments. The system language...
