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.

Lets see, I have SlackBox, Darkstar, requiem, Kitty and Big kitty.
Darkstar - was put apart and sold,
Kitty died, its sitting in the corner, i think the PSU burned out
Big kitty was reformatted and that evil OS was installed on it, and it was transfered to my father's office
Requiem is next to me, but currently without a monitor, since i have dualhead on SlackBox, i can still SSH and use it through slackbox tho.
I'm thinking about buying a laptop as well, but they cost so damn much and if i buy one i would like to buy the best i can get, since in computer technology clock speeds double every 18 months (Who was the guy who predicted that again?) so it's useless buying a average laptop just to sell it in a year...
Well, i bet you all are interested in what my computers are called...

Ah, and I have nebuchadnezzar (Slackware 8.1) and matrix (gentoo 1.4), though matrix is slowly comming to its end - PSU died recently, one memory stick went along with it, heatsink on the CPU fan is falling appart, etc.
I consider it to be the best background site on the planet.
However, Evilbox, is that not a background you can only get if you are member?, you need to pay to become a member Thymox. but they also have free backgrounds, i.e. my background. check it out at
Ah, yes! I see the 'digi in the bottom right, now. I just went over to db's and yes, that one is a members-only. Got some pretty cool backgrounds, and some anims to play (with Mplayer) for my backgrounds... because I am that sad.
