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.

Linux World Boston second day.
The Exhibit hall today was filled with vendors and linux enthusiats.
I met Jeremy, shook his hand and welcomed him to Boston.
I also got to meet Warren from Simply Memphis and I talked with him about my experience with the Live CD. I hope that he can get Memphis to have better compatibilty with older hardware but only time will tell if that will happen.
I also talked to the guys from Emporerlinux. They showed me a pre-release Sharp Notebook that has a special 3D LCD monitor Which lets you get a good look are chemical and particle models. (something to think about for you MedTech/Scitech folks.) The Sharp Notebook was running Debian (I don't which version)
The guys at Emporerlinux custom build linux notebooks from Windows release notebooks. So every laptop they sell is Unique.
Most of the Big Name Vendors where there taking up a lot of space: IBM, Novell, Oracle, O'Reilly, SAMs, SourceForge, etc.
My vote for most annoying vendor goes to Virex (I think that is their name). I had a batman model lecture me on the virtues of his product and he invited me to come to lecture at 11am.
Virex had Batman, Spiderman, Wonderwoman and other superhero models reeling in the customers.
I just can't take a vendor seriously when the have superhero garbed models hawking the product.
Well that just about covers my experience on day 2.
Maybe I can drop in tomorrow to see some of the other vendors that I did not get a chance to really talk to.
