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 installed Debian etch from a disc and it did not configure my apt-get sources to work properly. Example: I type apt-get install "example here" and it always comes back saying could not find package. It does this for every search. I tried to change the script under vi /etc/apt/sources.list but I dont think I have the scripting correct. Does anyone have any info on this? Thank you in advance.
The only source you currently have is the install CD, which only has a limited amount of packages. You will need to add some new internet sources. If you can tell me where you are located geographically (I don't need an address, just a rough idea), I can suggest some sources.
