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.

Well done, whoever it was who started this thread - quite amusing!!!
p.s. Chad, I presume that the "geeky bald dude" on your photo page isyou - if so, judging from the wedding photo, that would make me taller and about eighty pounds heavier (similar haircut!) - maybe I should get a scanner and some pictures/my website done!!!
Of course you should. I think everyone should have a piece of the internet somewhere that they can say is "their homepage". As for a scanner, they are actually giving a few away at McDonald's with the happy meals now No, but they are really dropping in price. Make sure you get a scanner that is known to work in Linux though, my POS doesn't. It's ok though because I have a digital camera though.
Yep that's me, the geeky bald dude, only I too am 80 pounds heavier now The geeky bald dude one was right after I got up here, still in some decent shape then. The wedding photo was shortly after boot camp, so I was slim and fit then. Anyway, I was really lazy and didn't get the pics onto my computer yet to upload em, but I will do it soon.
