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.

"Following Aristotle, I divide them into essence, the difficulties inherent in the nature of software, and accidents, those difficulties that today attend its production but are not inherent." -- Fred Brooks, "No Silver Bullet"
This is the second time I've referred to this particular paper on this blog. I've read it numerous times, and even though it was written in 1986, the facts set forth by Brooks still hold true today.
This tutorial will setup Claws-Mail with HTML Mail Viewing, Spam Filtering and GnuPG Encryption. If you use Yahoo Mail or some other service, you will need to get the settings for your email from your provider. The information here came from the Claws-Mail Help and from SlackBuilds.org.
Compile and install the following applications in the following order from SlackBuilds.org
A long overdue change has been made in the process of evaluating Linux distributions. The main reason for making the change is the obvious deficiency in the previous testing method. Do we turn off the radio, every time we wish to change a station?

Upgraded an old k2-500 with 192 meg of ram to Debian Squeeze and installed lxde, so I did not have to use gnome. One really down was it did not support my wireless nic out of the box so to speak. There goes my honeypot. Had a usb nic and it worked fine after downloading and installing the firmware.
Looks like I have a bunch of wireless cards that are useless now. I have not taken time to recompile the code so maybe all is not lost.
