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'm no Linux expert, but if I'm correct, this particular worm can't do anything to a Linux system. Is this correct?
u think these worms would get smarts, a smart worm would srat and attack in like only hours after it was relaesed, long b4 anyone could alert the worl of a new worm, thus acutaly doing somthing that is meaningful, like dos attack sco and ms? (not realy meaningful, but it is to the virus wirters who are no doupt just out to hurt them)
