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.

Stupid post but I am waiting on a couple of programs to compile and thought I would ask... How long can you stare at a terminal screen? I have been now for about 16 hours, oh and I have been for 16 hours each day for the last 3 days.
Ok so I am a rookie compared to some of you but hey its a try. Man I hate it when a upstream bandwidth provider goes bankrupt, that makes for alot of work for me. But hey at least I get to work in a place that encourages me to learn and work with linux servers.
So whats your record for working at a terminal screen, You are allow to include term in Xwindows as long as you were just using the terminal and not an gui stuff. Me personally I am using serveral terms on 4 different computers in a circle around me :-)
No, No, I was not just compiling one program, that was what I was doing at the moment I was posting. I have been figureing out how to do qmail, vpopmail, vqadmin, with pop3d and imap all logging into a mysql database, and using squirrelmail as the imap webmail client.
I am happy to report that I got it all figured out last night and is all working, now I just have to wait for the dns to filter through the internet.
Ohh and on top of trying to get that stuff working, I have had to add over 50 websites to the server and set up logging for each and transfer the site from a windows server to the linux server, so needless to say its been some long days.
Location: a tiny place caled hendrik ido ambacht in the netherlands
Distribution: SuSE, debian, slackware, lfs
Oh, well seems like there are a few guys that really were compiling for that long. 25 hours, 36 hours. O my god!!
O well. Cheers that you figured it all out. Don't forget to take a break one in a while.
My current favorate is to thump my head off the keyboard or monitor while trying to get whatever the problem of the day fixed on my 30th xterm, as I said above I usually have several xterms going on 4 different computers into one of my servers.
