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.

PowerTOP is a Linux tool that finds the software component(s) that make your laptop use more power than necessary while it is idle.

Cluster SSH opens terminal windows with connections to specified hosts and an administration console. Any text typed into
the administration console is replicated to all other connected and active windows. This tool is intended for, but not

First, I used a live CD to repartition my HD. I'm not the only user on this computer so I have to leave the other OS intact. I tried with Slackware to figure out how to change my partitions, but I was scared I would wreak something....
