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.

After spending 20+ years in the software side of the house (both as a programmer and as a sysad/engineer), I've finally started to really understand the hardware side of the house (well, I have much to learn, but it's starting to come together).
My first order of business has been to build out a desk variable power supply with a 480 Watt Antec PSU I had laying around....
