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.

SBackup is a simple backup solution intended for desktop use. It can backup any subset of files and directories. Exclusions can be defined by regular expressions. A maximum individual file size limit can be defined. Backups may be saved to any local and remote directories that are supported by gnome-vfs. There is a Gnome GUI interface for configuration and restore.
Well, I got my hands on my old computer, and Gentoo was still installed.a little emerge --sync, and DB was updated, then a little emerge -u world and no computer for 3 days. but passed from gnome 2.14 to gnome 2.16, and many other upgrades.
After a bit of troubleshooting, its working like charm again.
A little more tweaking, and Beryl is here!!!! Those raindrops are really funny, and the wiper, LOL.
Stuck w/ FC5 for about 10 months. I like it very much. I've recently installed Mandriva 2007 Free and I believe that I will likely "convert" to using Mandriva, a turn away from Fedora Core. Time will tell. I'm currently dealing with the /home/*/public_html issue (the lack of a default apache-mod_userdir seems a bit odd...). My first thought is that perhaps Mandriva isn't meant to be as "serious" / Pro a distribution as Fedora, in which case i may not choose to switch. I suppose...
I just installed fedora core 6 on a second hd (80 gb). I get an error message telling me "error loading operating system" with a blinking cursor. This happened just after I re-booted after I finished loading the OS. Did I make a mistake loading Linux onto only it's own hard drive? I have Windows XP with 109 Gb free on my first hard drive. I planned on having a dual-boot system and change out the hard drive and OS in my BIOS settings? Is this the best way to use two hard drives?
