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.

How come the cop gets off for shooting an unarmed man, but the minor drug offender gets the death penalty for shooting a heavily armed cop that burst into his home ?
I guess one must plan ahead when living in a police state. I'm at least gonna put motion sensitive cameras all around my home that will instantly inform me of suspicious activity. I'll probably lock myself inside a safe to make sure they finger doesn't slip, accidentally of course.
keep your hard drives in the safe also
and use 4096 bit full drive encryption
Last year, after a Utah man's home was raided for having 16 small marijuana plants, nearly 300 bullets in total were fired (most of them by the police) in the ensuing gunfight, the homeowner believing he was a victim of a home invasion by criminals. The U.S. military veteran later hanged himself in his jail cell while the prosecution sought the death sentence for the murder of one officer he believed to be an criminal assailant.
If you are a vet , and one that is armed . Then "unknown" intruders ( at that split moment ) use EXCESSIVE force entering . I would expect those entering to be shot .
the home owner HAS the right to defend him self
and for a Vet , the training takes over for that split sec. -- shoot FIRST !
For encryption, I have good methods, so good there is no need to keep them in a safe or treat them in any special way. The best way to treat them is just like any other HDD for plausible deniability reasons.
The homeowner opened fire "believing he was the victim of a home invasion by criminals". Where I come from, that's not an excuse for opening fire. But then we don't have vigilantes running round shooting teenagers either...
