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.

after much ado.. i figured out how to get my media to sync via my box at work (windows xp w/ WMP)
but luckily, i dont have any windoze at home anymore...
unfortunately.. i am having extreme problems getting the phone to see the computer at all.
i go into the My Music folder on the phone and hit the 'sync' button and it fails to connect and tells me to check the cables. meanwhile, the phone is charging, so i know its connected.
i remember in slackware, when i was getting the stuff onto my fujifilm digicam i just mounted /dev/sda1 and copied the stuff via raw port... i would be perfectly happy to do this with the phone also, but i can NOT get it to see the computer at all, AND in the /dev directory, there is no sd* anything...
i run ubuntu 6.06 dapper on both ov my workstations anyone have any experience doing this??
i put amaroK on the box, but alas, no connecty...
 here's my dmesg:
[17179676.400000] usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
