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.

The U.S. congress is thinking about making it possible to shut down the tubes here in the US. That scares me that they would think it would even be needed to be done here. Is there something we are not being told?

Ledgersmb does not work any more because of php issues, but then I never really used it. Probably have to replace with Sql-ledger. One of the reasons for getting phppgadmin working. Moodle needs to be upgraded. Have a lot of classes installed in it. Have to backup the data. Want to start using Drupal, may just tank the existing 6.x install and go for...

Finally made phppgadmin work with the help of LQ and a lot of other sites. Wanted to use phpmyadmin for remote management of psql databases. What a challenge. I think I changed every spec in as many files. Went through every log known to man (or at least most admins). had to make the port specs agree. Made sure the port was open with nmap. The real kicker was I had to go into a couple of php files and update the code because some of the code was deprecated. I made sure and use pdfit (a firefox plug...
