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 am pleased to announce the availability of the Bluewhite64 Linux 12.1!
Among the many program updates and distribution enhancements, you'll find better support for RAID, LVM, and cryptsetup; a network capable (FTP and HTTP, not only NFS) installer; two of the most advanced desktop environments available today: KDE 3.5.9, the latest version of the award-winning K Desktop Environment, and Xfce 4.4.2, a fast and lightweight but visually appealing and easy to use desktop environment; SMP Linux Kernel 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 (for testing) with advanced features and performance; Fuse 2.7.3 and ntfs-3g 1.2310 read/write NTFS driver; SCIM 1.4.7 (Smart Common Input Method); an updated IA32 Emulation (run 32-bit programs) in the EXTRA software series, and may more improved and upgraded packages. Read the Official Announcement for more details.
Please consider purchasing the Bluewhite64 Linux 12.1 DVD directly from the following stores: store.bin-sh.ro (RO) and on-disk.com (USA) and you'll be helping to support the continued development of Bluewhite64 Linux!
Special thanks to Patrick J. Volkerding, for creating and keeping alive Slackware Linux, to Lucian for providing xServers mirror, to Peter Polonkai for the deval.hu mirrors, to the people from the Bluewhite64 Linux forum and all others who are using Bluewhite64 Linux! Thank You and I hope that you will enjoy this new release!
OK, buying a bluewhite64 DVD can be a way, bur it can take time, because I've bought a Slackware 12.1 CD Set some days ago to support Slackware and I haven't got much money.
But I'm going to install a bluewhite64-current, so I'll make beta tests for bluewhite.
BTW: I've read, that you included ALICE in your Live DVD, have you contact to Darkstarlinux? I'm a developer of easys GNU/Linux and we are working together with "Darth Vader" from the Darkstar-Team. We included ALICE in our distribution, too.
I'm going to port easys to the AMD64 architecture; I'll use bluewhite as a basis, but I think, its bad to get things from bluewhite64 without giving something back. So, I like to help you with tests of bluewhite64 or building packages (but not to much, because I've got a slow internet connection). If you need help of this type, feel free to ask me. I can be your partner, not only a user, who uses your work for his project.
