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.

Exactly, I run a KVM switch and my linux box is always on (but not online all the time) and I turn on my XP box when I want to play games. Its more expensive but much more convienient and easy to setup and allows more flexibility with the two systems because you can setup linux for a desktop system and setup the windows box strictly for games and do away with all the garbage that slows it down.

I've heard that linux doesn't play nicely with KVM switches. I don't see how but I've heard that from a few different people. Ever had any issues?
