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 suppose once I learn Java, I should really try and get a handle on C. I've heard Java is C with training wheels, so I'd like to learn C. Also, it is a more powerful language, and I would like to submit a patch to the Linux kernel one day. Just a random thought.
Well, I guess it's time I start posting to my blog, seeing as I've been a member for a few months new. I'll start off by sharing something that I think might help some newbs, because it freaked me out when it happened to me. After installing Windows (AFTER Linux, which I shouldn't have done) and then rebooting, I was greeted by a nice message that said 'Operating system not found. Press Control-Alt-Delete to restart'. I didn't even know if it was a problem with Windows or Linux. Anyway, I got my...
