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 used the fc8 archive manager for the first time and made a .tar archive of a dir which was 1.7 MB and contained 14 files. The resulting archive ended up at about 3.5 MB. I have tried this a few times with similar results.
I copied the dir over to another system (RISCOS) and made a tar archive which was about 1.8 MB.
Is the fc8 archive manager broken?
Has anyone else had similar problems and if so is there a solution?
Sorry, it has been my mistake.
There was a hidden dir which contained about 1.8 MB, and which didn't transfer accross to the other system.
Must be a severe case of domestic blindness, as I 'thought' I had checked for that!
Great coats off!
