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.

Hey all, can you test this to see if this is universal and not just me?
I am using Mandrake 10 with Firefox 1.0 (preview) and so: here is my problem:
When I go to http://www.confluence.org it works. for the first time. cool. Then the next day I go and try to get to it and it is garbled. really wierd. Like when you try to read like a gif in notepad. OR: like the wingdings font. Garbled.
could you guys replicate the test it day one, close browser try again, and the next day try again.
I reboot my computer, perhaps this is my problem. (I refuse to sleep in a whirring room. the traffic is bad 'nuff.)
can you try that again Boffy? It worked for me first time, and then the next day (after overnight shutdown) garbled. man. same thing was happening several browsers in windows. (same comp, before linux)
just went to the link posted by Blinker_fluid, and....
IT WORKED!!! what the heck. and the main page too. will try a close tab open again..... perhaps I'm having a php rendering problem, or perhaps my ISP is having problems picking up "index.php" in "confluence.org"
after closing and opening the tab and trying again.... same garbage characters.
what is this!?!?
It seems to me that you should really be contacting confluence.org about any strange behavior you are seeing with their website - I'm not sure how posting comments here at LQ about some other website's performance problems would resolve any possible issues. If you are a fan of that website, you probably would be doing them a big favor by reporting these problems to them. -- J.W.
