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 just realized I have a research paper due tomorrow on the AS/400. I have to give general info on, as well as cover my topic (everybody in the class has a topic regarding the AS/400 they need to cover)..
So, my topic is "Describe types of system software available on an AS/400". I've done some googling, and haven't found jack - I've gotten some basic stuff on the AS/400, but more would be great.
Our teacher doesn't even know anything about the AS/400. Actually, the college I attend has a fairly poor computer program, but it is slowly improving. How poor is it? I'm one of 2, MAYBE 3 people who actually use Linux - one of those people is our sysadmin - and the 3rd claims he does, but I wonder sometimes.. Our instructor knows mostly networking and databases, but it's all on the Windows side of things. Any time we have Linux related stuff, I teach it. :/
Anyway, if you could just provide me with some information, I'd appreciate it. I'm going to be doing some more googling while I write the intro stuff for the paper. It's only 5 pages, so it's not like it's a huge deal to write (We write one every 2 weeks - this is an Advanced Network Administration class). I'm normally not a slacker on my school work like this, but it completely slipped my mind :/
Proposal papers are easier - mostly you tend to grab the last one and use it as a template as a lot of it will carry over. In fact, any business document is usually cribbed off it's predecessor - speeches, letters, etc.
