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.

Ran the live edition, seemed to go OK, internet working etc, so decided to install. My partitions were as follows, to make it easier (glad I decided to do that last time!):
/sda1 12GB obsolete ubuntu version to be replaced by the new LMDE
/sda2 logical partition:
/sda5 2GB swap
/sda3 36GB DATA partition with all my files on
/sda4 11GB Linux Mint 10 (to leave for now so I know it works if I need to do work!)
I currently have two computers, both elderly: a Pentium 4 desktop and a Pentium M laptop, both with 1GB RAM. At the moment I'm using Linux Mint 10 (Gnome) on the desktop and Linux Mint LXDE 11 on the laptop.
Linux Mint 10 is coming up to the end of it's support, so I need to do something on this computer... Ideally I want to have something with longer term support, so I don't have to faff around setting everything up again until I get around to getting a new computer with decent...
It's inevitable. Eventually you will end up with more than one computer. If you were smart enough to hold on to the old one, here is a way you can now use both, or 3 or 4, with one keyboard and mouse. This tutorial is done on Vectorlinux using the Quicksynergy front end, but Synergy itself will run on Mac, Windows as well as all Linux flavors. As usual, I've captured it all on video and put it up on Youtube.
