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 received this from a friend and I do agree. . . So if you're out and
about and run upon this situation... Remember this...With all of this talk
of impending war, many of us will encounter "Peace Activists" who will try and
convince us that we must refrain from retaliating against the ones who
terrorized us all on September 11, 2001. These activists may be alone or in
a gathering.....most of us don't know how to react to them. When you come
upon one of these people, or one of their rallies, here are the proper rules of
1. Listen politely while this person explains their views. Strike up a
conversation if necessary and look very interested in their ideas. They
will tell you how revenge is immoral, and that by attacking the people who did
this to us, we will only bring on more violence. They will probably use
many arguments, ranging from political to religious to humanitarian.
2. In the middle of their remarks, without any warning, punch them in
3. When the person gets up off of the ground, they will be very angry
and they may try to hit you, so be careful.
4. Very quickly and calmly remind the person that violence only brings
about more violence and remind them of their stand on this matter. Tell
them if they are really committed to a nonviolent approach to undeserved
attacks, they will turn the other cheek and negotiate a solution. Tell them they
must lead by example if they really believe what they are saying.
5. Most of them will think for a moment and then agree that you are
6. As soon as they do that, hit them again. Only this time hit them
much harder. Square in the nose.
7. Repeat steps 2-5 until the desired results are obtained and the
idiot realizes how stupid of an argument he/she is making.
8. There is no difference in an individual attacking an unsuspecting
victim or a group of terrorists attacking a nation of people. It is
unacceptable and must be dealt with. Perhaps at a high cost. We owe our
military a huge debt for what they are about to do for us and our
children.We must support them and our leaders at times like these. We have no choice.
We either strike back, VERY HARD, or we will keep getting hit in the nose.
I agree that we should strike, however, at the some time this has little to do with Sept 11. Bush and his whole family are supported by oil, and they need to protect that investment. There has not been any conclusive proof that Saddam had involvement in Sept 11, and we attacked before we knew he had any WMD.
I am not saying that we should not put him down on his knees and shoot him in the head and show it on worldwide television, but simply that Bush is doing this more to protect himself and family fortune than what he and his dumb staff have bee saying.
