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 registered there last Thur. or Fri. and it said I could not post until I received the activation email. Well I never got it so I thought it might be my ISP's fault so about an hour latter I registered again with a diff name and this time with a gmail address and still nothing.
Very odd, all I can suggest then is that either you made a typo when setting up your account (possible...) or that the Freespire server had a brain fart (a mail fart?) and didn't send you the mail. I would suggest using http://forum.freespire.org/sendmessage.php to contact the admins.
I regst twice, contacted admin once near after I regst...oh well i'll try what u say latter,
I just got the freespire cd, ran the live part of it, it is real cool, blows windows away. Gonna put in a empty hard drive and install it now, can't get to a file system on the live cd to work on my hardware settings...maybe the os will see more after an install, + I have to install xp back on my laptop so I can get on the net to pick-up the freespire manual.
