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.

After the last attempt at installation failed (it had something to do with misplaced headers due to package management failing to pack glibc correctly), I decided to try again. Using the 64-bit LFS CD/Instruction manual to build the toolchain, Gentoo X64_86 to build the base system.
Package Management: It's all in my head. Not a very effective way of managing what gets installed, but it is my preferred method of installing LFS.

I normally have 2 User Folders. 1 for Windows and 1 for Linux.
Usually this is because I have a nicely sized partition for Linux (50GB - 100GB on a 200GB drive for instance). But due to circumstances earlier mentioned in my previous blogs, and partly to do with my laziness, and also due to my inquisitive nature, I've decided to give my Linux partition a small piece of the pie on this drive. About 18 GB, quite inadequate for the kinds of files I download have the user folder to be...

It's been months since my last posting. But I finally got around to reinstalling Linux.
I went ahead and reformatted the windows partition to lower it's max capacity by 18GB (for Linux).
The home dir is binded to the Windows partition, specifically, the Users folder. So the Linux user home directory is shared with the Windows User directory. So there's no need to back up both places, since they are shared. This is accomplished by NTFS-3G.

Yeah, I am testing out Windows 7, because I enjoy testing new things out.
One of the irks was that I had delete all the partitions I had in order to install this spoiled child. Creating a partition in free space of 100GB of a 200GB drive (50GB was used for Linux, and another for another installation of Windows) would yield nothing but errors.
Deleting of the other Windows partition would allow me to create a partition of that space. But to create a partition in the...

Because I don't like Opera (something about it just feels weird to me), and Firefox 3 has some features I really do not like.
For instance, in the url bar, it now has the tendency to search through the titles of pages you visited instead of the url you are trying to type. If I wanted to search through titles, I would use the frickin' history list. I WANT THE BROWSER TO SEARCH BY URL NOT BY TITLE WHEN I TYPING STUFF IN THE URL BAR!
