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.

Thanks.. I'll try it when I get home. Though I think anonymizer is blocked as well. Why sourceforge is blocked puzzles me, since they themselves advocate Linux.... But believe me, probably 90% of computers here are using winwoes - and 90% of those are probably pirated.
It's past midnight where you are Master C... still awake huh? Where i am it's almost 4:00 pm, and where GT I.N.C is... probably 6:00 pm...
I work in a publications office of an International School... we churn out weekly bulletins and such...
You can probably visualize the room I'm in... paper all over the place AND ALL THOSE CLOCKS with times from different cities hanging on the wall... someone from Renton, Seattle in the desk in front of me, someone from Sydney sifting through a stack of pictures for this week's issue...
Let me clarify this my friend... check my location... ok, this means I am in that country... and here every ISP goes through THE ONE - [Insert country's name here] Telecom. So it won't matter.
Some of the embassies though, seem to be exempted from this firewall
If I am correct it was AT & [insert letter after 'S' here] that helped them develop the great f*ckin firewall that filters everything in and outta here...
I feel that the local Big Brother is watching. To what extent I don't know. They seem to be able to block something instantly like when I type 'freenet' on a search engine - that one they don't allow. but immediately after I type "quicktime", and nothing comes up... wait a few minutes though it will be ok. Some days seem better than others.
A friend of mine once found out their house was bugged... I think mine maybe as well.... (am I paranoid or what?)
Anyway... that is why I am looking for away around (or through) to sourcefourge. [Now to appease Big Brother] As I have said, I understand (I think) the rationale for this wall. BUT I JUST WANNA GET TO SOME FRICKN SOFTWARE!!!
