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 recently read an article, old but still intresting:
(Sorry, cannot post url yet)
Does anyone have more information about this and how SCO responds to the letter from Novell to SCO shown in the article? Are there any code in Linux that have been copied from UNIX System V and if so, will that hurt the Linux-community?
Originally posted by rshaw christ, where have you been? no, there is no sys v in linux from ibm or anyone else.
I was not refering to a version of the Linux kernel that would be called "Linux System V" or something, but if there was some code copied from the UNIX System V as SCO claims and uses as an argument when they tries to claim ownership of Linux.
I dunno, you could always read through all of the articles on Groklaw - that way you can see a load of articles and legal pleadings. So far, SCO hasn't proved (or realy even tried to prove) that Linux has any Unix code at all.
