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 tried to upgrade my system from etch to unstable release. Here is how I tried to do it:
And after all, I receive such error:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
xfonts-utils: Depends: xfonts-encodings but it is not installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
When I'm rying to invoke apt-get -f install, I get:
(Reading database ... 63941 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking xfonts-encodings (from .../xfonts-encodings_1%3a1.0.0-3_all.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/xfonts-encodings_1%3a1.0.0-3_all.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite `/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/encodings/encodings.dir', which is also in package xfonts-base
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
What I done wrong? or how can I rollback to previous state? I can't install anything due dependence, and I'm really worry about it.
Thanks in advice.
