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 anyone go any lower: "Its digital-limbo time. How low(slow) can you go?"
I gues it is true. Only a Linux user would be proud of how slow their machines are.
Beat you on my 486 that runs command line linux (and fairly fast)!

I have a whole garage filled with old motherboards hard drives cdroms and cases and such. I have enough stuff to make like 20 computers. All this stuff is not actually mine tho, only I have access to it and can take anything I want since the owner sees it as taking up space. I have a grip of old mobos for 486 and slot Pentium cpus.
My main computer is a custom built machine
Asus MOBO mx350 or something or other
AMD phenom black edition quad core CPU 2.3ghz i think
500 and 300 gig harddrives
Nvidia 8800GTX card
Soundblaster xfi <-- yes ive actually got this to work at one point
LG dvd writer
Im not at home right now otherwise I would be better with some of these numbers.
I also have a netbook with LFS, a atom cpu system for a NAS and server, and 2 other computers one is for school work and the other is as a DVR that used to be a flash drive raid system running gentoo.
