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've made yet a another version (20130926) of exGENT 2013. This time for the 64 bit architecture. I've kept my two previous versions 20130423 and 20130415 on Sourceforge.net. The old versions are for the 32 bit architecture. The new version (130926 of 1070 MB) uses LXDE as Desktop environment. Used kernel: 3.11.1-gentoo-exton (with kernel sources). The system can easily (in about 5 min) be installed to hard drive or/and to a usb pen drive....
I’ve made a third version of exGENT 2013. Now with LXDE and kernel 3.9.2-gentoo-exton. Version 130521 is for the 64 bit architecture. I’ve kept my two previous versions 20130423 and 20130415 on Sourceforge.net. The old versions are for the 32 bit architecture.
exGENT 64 bit version 130521 is in very good shape. Yesterday I could run the following commands without problems:
The best thing with exGENT (Gentoo) Linux Live DVD is the premier autodetection of hardware and the ability to easily install the system to hard drive and/or a USB stick.
Quick install to Hard Drive and/or USB stick
exGENT Linux can be installed to hard drive and/or a usb pen drive in 1 – 5 min. (Depending on computer type). This means that all of you who might hesitate to perform a normal Gentoo installation – which can take up to a couple of days – now have the chance to...
I’ve made a new version (130415) of exGENT, which is based on Gentoo. The old version of exGENT is from 130318. My new exGENT Linux live system uses LXDE as Desktop Environment and “my special” genkernel 3.7.10-gentoo-exton. LXDE is used because of its speed. Quite new is that I’ve found a suitable installation program, in which a Grub installation (Grub Legacy) is included. I’ve also added even more support för Atheros and Broadcom wireless cards in version 130415.
