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.

3 years ago I stumbled upon this site and was the 560th member. I had no intention I would still be around 3 years later and never imagined that this site would have grown to be the size of what it is today.
Hands down, I think it is the best Linux and *nix related forum on the Internet. After many posts and changes made in helping to improve this site with the other moderators and of course Jeremy, I have come to a conclusion with myself I do in fact spend way too much time here.
Don't worry though, I'm not leaving.
But I do have some goals I want to do now with being a member and moderator of this great site. Instead of posting so much in General at times, which most of the time its moderating anyways, and repeating myself in many posts in which members seem to lack searching skills, I am going to focus mainly in improving and adding to the sections of this site to help members, newcomers, etc.
I think instead of posting so much in the forums, answering questions, I'm going to try and write small howto's, tips and anything else I can to add to the reviews section, HCL, Answers and so on to only make the documentation and information on this site even better.
So I just thought I'd share with everyone my goals in being a part of this great site as yes, I do spend too much time here and figured cutting back my login time on it and the time I do spend on here will be more constructive per se.
Happy LQ'ing everyone and thanks to Jeremy for creating a monster out of me with my addiction to this site.
Rock on. You've been doing a kick butt job. I would agree with you though. Gotta get your goals and priorities in order. As my last post stated here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...420#post684420
I am going to stop posting so much in General. I need to focus my time in the other forums to help folks.
I have come to a conclusion with myself I do in fact spend way too much time here.
Only took you 13,510 posts to realize this, huh?
Seriously, on a board with 80,000 members, you're easy to spot. You are certainly the most patient person I have come across, and it is nice that you will take the time to help those who have an aversion to searching.
Cool....congrats tricky....better watch out..... If my Linux addiction doesn't calm down I'm gonna be racking up the posts
Kickarse...ha havent heard that in about ...um... a week....lol Not many people say it except for the newfies and my family is mostly from newfoundland...i kind off like that saying anyway....Congrats again for doing such a fine job on this site
