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.

Hello everyone, this is just a general question, when you have spare time on your hands, what do you do (on linux specifically) or elsewhere for entertainment? projects, you know discoveries, work with something new, but what is that?
Well and shudder and wave a linux CD or DVD when she asks me to fix it. Think I have found the problem though. Freezes often on booting, sneezing, looking at the system, looking away from the system, moving the mouse, pressing a button on the kb, doing nothing, doing something, could also be due to the rotation of the planet. Thinking its a hard-drive problem. Nothing a fdisk, format and a fresh linux install won't fix though. Paperweight option seems to work but get the blue-screen unless its powered off for the job.
listen to internet radio / watch videos.
play chess on fics.
read the news on my favourite websites.
browse the web .
tweak the system (naturally).
record music (from live instruments as well).
stay tuned in with friends that are too far away right now to just go and have a beer with them.
work my way through 'hacking, the art of exploitation' by j. erickson. which is going to take me another decade, probably. great book though if one is interested in the techniques behind serious hacking.
