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 went to microsoft.com to read up on the worm but when i clicked on "Urgent alert Heres how to stop the worm now" I got a bunch of scrambled ascii characters all over my browser screen then i hit the back button and clicked it again and i got a bunch of C code. so i did a double tap on my ctrl key and went to microsoft.com on win98 and i got a regular page with info. What is that all about?
could have been but the first click was all kinds of wacky characters all over it didnt look like code at all the second was a C type language, but why would it look different from the first click only on my Linux box though?
that reminds me...i saw something that i couldn't understand some time ago but never asked....why was there a microsoft booth at linuxworld? I looked at the floorplan that people posted in that other post about LinuxQuestions going to linuxworld, and microsoft had a huge booth right in the middle...hmm
They were at the last LW as well.. just a way for them to promote their services to computer nerds.... And yes, they were mainly promoting from what I could tell this time around was their Unix Services 3.0 or something like that.. along with the Shared Source thingy they're doing...
