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.

PLEASE NOTE: All LQ Rules apply to the General forum. Flame wars, personal attacks, hostility, insults and behavior of that nature will not be tolerated. Differing opinions are one of the things that make this site great, but to benefit from differing opinions the discourse must happen respectfully and thoughtfully... without insult or personal attack. Members who are unable or unwilling to participate in General under those parameters will not be permitted to do so. If you see behavior of this nature please report it.
what a crock, the picture on the right shows......hackers, programmers, "guys who know what they're talking about."
the picture on the left shows some fat broad who, more than likely does NOT KNOW what "power on self test" means.
ROFLMAO! I love that, hEhEhE. I, too, was expecting some technical merit... but frankly, that was technical enough for me!
On the flip side... I really do like FreeBSD. I like how it takes a couple extra security measures over Linux (at least, over Slackware) by default (ie, no root SSH login, the "wheel" group, etc.). Not that it can't be done in Linux, just that it takes a little more effort =P
The picture doesn't persuade me. Uhm, there are women all over the place so why is a woman dressed in BSD mascot costume going to be persuasive? It was a good try, though. Frankly, I would have laughed if I hadn't seen that picture before.
If you really want to see women using *nix, give them a copy of Knoppix and boot it up for them. They may not be persuaded by the sluggish performance from running the operating system off an optical drive, but you can then tell them this OS can be installed onto their computer for good and they'll never be bothered by Outlook worms or pop-up ads ever after.
By the way, I think it's best Linus-in-speedo pics stay out of the public view--for my sake.
