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.
OK Mr. UnSpawn, no hard feelings, but you have to look at some things through my eyes. It can't be that Jeremy or mods are always right and 500,494 members wrong. Ban me again, that's OK, but I think that sometimes you and other mods (not all of them I must say) and Jeremy do not adhere to the LQ Rules you agreed to adhere to when you signed up for the account. Some things sometimes should be discussed in an open manner and sometimes you and some other mods and Jeremy take that freedom away from the members. Have a look into your hearts dear mods and Jeremy and think about it.
If there is a problem, do get to the point. Currently I see that your attitude and cursing are problems.
I guess that is addressed to me as the op did not curse and is already banned.
No problem on my side I just think that some thing are worth for the public to know. And as I sometimes get the same impression as the op I think its the right way to put this on a public post.
If you wish to contact Jeremy, you can do so via email or PM (details are in his profile). You could also contact the individual moderator to resolve your issues - whether it is because you disagree with a particular decision or because you have a complaint about a member of staff.
While it may seem like a great idea to complain in thread about the mod, it really is a great way to get your complaint buried by noise. As has been noted above, we have some half a million members on LQ, if just 10% of those members commented it would turn into a massive free for all.
Please do use the contact details for Jeremy or the particular moderator directly, the whole team are always available to discuss issues raised about the site.
I am closing this in the hope that my advice will be taken.
