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.

one month left of being a student and i've still got about 500 printer credits on my university account... anyone want to recommend something to do with them? ideally i'd like an online book about NIS but other utterly different suggestions welcome.
I did not mean to offend you by suggesting "entry level" material, the only reason I am suggesting it, is because I think that it is really, really good. It might not be a good choice for you, but for an intermediate user interested in development, it's really good.
Maybe you should just save the trees and ask them to convert the printing credits into something else..like download megabites or something..I hate it at work when our managers waste so much paper on handing out statistics when they are already avalible online..
While trees are a re-newable resource the rate of usage far out weighs the production..
omg Im turning into an environmentalist..
But really, if they could make paper out of bones would you be happy that you gave your life just because someone had extra credits and didn't want to waste them..and I think the uni should be supportative of the idea and give you something else as an alternative..
NIS??? I work in a pharmacy; and in the Navy. In pharmacy NIS means NOT IN STOCK(or we are out of it). In the US Navy NIS means Naval Investigational Service (like the CIA). Apparently in Linux it means something else?
