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.

Hmm... seems ppl generally remember me here... not sure wether to laugh or cry... For the record i'd like to add that i wear girls clothes, nail varnish and eyeliner, DJ hardcore indie nights, and erm... well that'll do.
[I'm bored... has anyone else ever spent five minuets flicking the mouse scrollwheel up and down as fast as possible, and then watch and wait while the browser cathes up? no.. oh...]
as far as fortune goes, i made my own fortune file, with song lyrics instead of very not funny jokes, and stuck a line in a script to pipe the output to a file, and then use that sig in pine. kmail is very very sucky.
