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.

Due to a combination of misconfiguration and a buggy bootprom/kernel interface, I just spent several days digging around in the 22.214.171.124 kernel bring-up code, looking for why my nominated RFS device was being ignored.
On the journey I noticed several things that may be worthy of comment (or on the other hand, maybe all of the following is well-trodden territory for the guys on here - judge for yourselves).

That was the argument used by my grandfather when I told him to reboot...into Archlinux if he wanted to work efficiently. "What doesn't Linux have?" was my natural response. "Linux doesn't have my documents, Linux doesn't have the software for my Kodak digital camera, and for my pulse monitoring device" I admit I had to concede the last point. Try explaining the difference between storing/accessing data and running a program : in both cases its just a click on an icon. So Linux...
I'n new to the linux world. I have a question. what is the easiest most reliable way to send files from Centos (red hat) to a windows server/pc. Or better yet, the procedure of transfering files from linux to Windows. ex. FTP? Telnet, etc. Ive been told I need to have Samba running on the Linux server.

I have tinkered with Linux on and off for many years. I have to confess that I was one of those who would start an installation (and sometimes succeed) only to blow it off and install Windows. I was easily frustrated.
My company made a concerted effort to go 100% Windows just as Windows 2003 was about to go RTM so with help from a consultant we build and deployed our first forest. Shortly after that we discovered that there were legacy UNIX apps that would not port over. Hot on the...
