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.

Im in the UK and just finished my degree in Information Systems and Technology and Im working as a Network administrator part-time while going back to do an MSc in E-Commerce Job prospects wise where I live there are some jobs out there but to get good money I got to move. I'd love to move to Canada for a few years (or more) personally but Im not sure how to get started on that road i.e. where to apply how to get in contact with Canadian companies etc.........
Started up recently doing .NET stuff after getting an MSc in Birmingham. Don't be too concerned with pay in your first job - we work with consultants (whom I have slagged off on this board) who are on serious money and most of them are agreed that with two years experience consultancy is nearly assured.
I am a .NET convert though. It uses an open network object model and as mono developers can testify, it's on it's way for Linux. I am too pragmatic to be concerned with where it came from. I just don't care.
I am not religious about OS's (anymore?) and really not many people can afford to be. Keep an open mind, a keen eye and a spring in your step, young Skywalker and Tatooine will all be yours one day!
