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 took the chat reference off the homepage quite a while ago. Some links do still refer to it however. At this time we do not have the resources to offer this. It is very likly that at some point in the future it will come back.

What kind of resources are we talking about? Money? Horsepower?
Originally posted by CragStar Just how constructive would a chat room be? One-on-one chat maybe, but really, most chat rooms that I have seen are a complete mess most of the time.
Well... Not under my tyrannic operatorship! One step away from the line and ... smack!
But seriously, I think it would be a pretty good idea. We could even try some "non-standard" chats for a change, like a modified quake server or something less heavy, like this: http://www.openverse.com/
Frankly non-standard chats (i.e. visual/3D) will make it harder to discuss technical issues... Imagine copy pasting your smb.conf into a tiny speech bubble on OpenVerse.
