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.

But, like I said, it was just an observation.
I get logged out too, because I have a small cache that
automatically dumps cookies...yet sometimes I can come back
here and it recognizes me anyway. I don't know....
More importantly, I have just responded to your note...AT
DISTRIBUTIONS? It shocked me, admittedly...AT FIRST,
I may have over-reacted, but some of that was thinking just
how I did something like any newbie would do, so I left it with

ACCESSIBLE to all challenged folks, right?
Not speaking for myself, of course.
Me, I'm in no minority...I'm linux -challenged and I think most
