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.

It's one of these days. Sometimes I feel like one of a small number of lemmings who have learned to turn right before they reach the edge of the cliff. Now we few lemmings are standing there, desperately trying to keep all the others from following their one-dimensional path to self-destruction. But is it really worth it?
Sometimes I feel that people have an inalienable right to their own stupidity. Users using Windows is natural selection at work. Let them go down. Don't try to help...
Hi I have an Acer Aspire One, running on Linux OS. When I go to add or remove software, my system starts to load, but doesn't complete its tasks, it just stays there searching, and I have to force it close as well. I am new to this operating system. If anyone can help me, understand how to make my package manager do its job, it would be greatly appreciate.

Well I finally bought some Ram (1GB DDR 333) from newegg for my old computer (AMD AthlonXP 2400+ 120GB HDD, 40GB HDD). There's no need for an OS install since Gentoo is already installed. And there is a lot of data on the dead (as of now since it has no ram) computer that I value highly.
Would directories defined as SAMBA shares be sufficient enough for a Private File server?
Of course, I need to configure the system to be access from a different system for system upgrades...
