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 just installed Linux to see what it's like and let me tell you I'm inpressed! It takes me back to the old days of DOS. LOL Anyway I found this community while trying to find a way to mount my USB thumbdrive and I wanted to say Howdy ho to everyone. Lookin' forward to painful nights trying to get applications to work and straining my eyes reading the Console. LOL got to love it
LOL, thanks for the warm welcome folks. I'm running Redhat 9 with KDE as my GUI interface. I have to agree that Linux is powerful indeed. Takes some getting used to though. Got Samba up and running last night so I can connect to my home network.
I've heard of the great sense of community in the Linux realm. I guess this is proof positive. I look forward to many great discussions with everyone.
As for your wealth of information, this site is a treasure trove. It's always one of the first that pops up on every google search and it usually answers my questions outright.
Distribution: Mac OS 10.7 / CentOS 6(servers) / xubuntu 13.04
Someone told me this is the ONLY RED HAT forum on the web now? I guess it is, because its the only one I found when looking around for XConfig help, and now that my Linux is back up and running I am sure I will be using LQ a whole hell of a lot more.. Right now I am working on getting Apps up and running..
