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.

I have had lots of troubles getting good video players for Linux. The one Fedora comes with Totem, works great at playing Ogg Vorbis Video, but all other file types it cant play. Then I tried Helix Player, but I could not get it to play anything.
Then I got Yum to use the Livna RPM Repository, and got Mplayer. It has a little bit of an odd interface, but it plays Video fine. Then I also got Xine, and It plays Videos fine also. What is with the Players in the Fedora Repository not...
I have been using sBackup on Kubuntu 7.04 (placing the data on a local NAS drive) for a while. I have even been able to recover data using the recovery tool. Then my system crashed and I had to reinstall the OS. Now when I go to recover my data using sBackup, it errors out and will not allow me to see/access my data. Have I screwed up when I reistalled the OS? Is there still a way to acess my data within the compressed files?
1. I have already removed Windows from my Computer in favour of Linux.
2. My farther cares about Computer security, and would not like the Fact Norton does not run well on Vista.
3. Many Games (and other programs) have trouble running on Vista.
4. It's GUI Is ugly, some say it is based on the Mac GUI (Also Ugly.)
5. It takes up WAY to much hardware. I would have to buy a new Computer.
6. Windows Vistas has DRM, and other things that spy on you.
Most of you Internet savvy people will just laugh at me for this one. I will freely admit that I'm a little slow in adopting new technologies or old technologies that I have never used. I understand email. I understand forums. I understand static HTML sites. IRC or chat in general is not something I know or understand. Today proved how frustrated a newbie can become when exposed to technologies which they have never used or been taught.

I get a 160 GB hard drive, and figured "this should be easy".
Windows installs ok, I had it create an 70 GB NTFS partition (slow to format).
When it asked me about partitioning, it sees 137 GB which it lists at the top of the screen, and also when showing the partitions created.
This is strange, but I don't think much of it - I figure if it can see up to and past 70 GB, then it doesn't matter.
Installed SP4 and other updates....
