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.

Mailing lists are fine among a limited group of developers. But this is a bad idea for offering help to refer to a mailing list.
Mailing lists are limiting submissions to their subscribers, or not. These days, no one, not even hard core developers, would want their email box polluted by spammers. So that means no open (anyone can send) mailing lists. But that also means anyone just needing some quick help has to become a subscriber to the mailing list, first. Not only is that a hassle...
