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.

hi. i bought suse 8 at compusa, it has i believe 7 cd and dvd. the install i did use 4 cd,s, though i don,t set up anything fancy like apache, sambra, which may requie you to use more cd,s. the big dissappointment i have with suse 8 is that they didn,t include raid, i don,t know what they are thinking about. lot of use use raid, i have it set up on red hat 7.2, and it is a lot faster using raid 0. the sue sound drivers are pretty good, my harmon kardon 695 sound very good. a plus for suse 8. i also have downloaded mandrake 8.2 , iso download, i really like mandrake 8.2 so far, though i have red hat 7.2 and suse 8 installed, may reinstall 8.2 later when i can get a manual. mandrake is very easy to install, the easiest i have used.

I got to about 40% of the first CD, but that's all, the speed really sucked (~3-4kb/s) and I got repeatedly disconnected with my line being taken by somebody else before I even had a chance to reconnect.
Anyone knows any other links??
I know there are ISO images circling on eDonkey2000, but all those I've found are incomplete (30-40 megs), and trust me I've been looking, plus I've heard from others that at least some of them are fake, so....a fast ftp link would be appreciated Or if someone knows a server/hub on either eDonkey2000 or Direct Connect where I can find complete ISO images
Anyway, how come this open source distro Suse 8 is harder to get hold of on the net than M$ products like XP?? Isn't that a bit strange?? Couldn't they at least release a CD version without a fancy box and manuals for those of us who don't have a lot of money to spend but still want the best Linux can offer? Damn greedy Suse
Originally posted by sapilas well i know that there are no official ISOs ..
So can anyone post a copy of his cds in ISO format in an ftp/http/ssh space to download them
This makes me sick. I thought Linux users were different, but now people want to resort to illegal activities instead of waiting 3 bloody weeks for SuSE 8.0 to be officially available from FTP.
Really, you don't belong to the Linux community I'm so passionate about if you feel requesting something illegal on an open message board is reasonable behaviour. There are plenty of free (as in beer) Linux distributions available, but instead you want to fleece one of the best and most dedicated Linux distributions of the little money they get.
Just go back and use your Warez copy of Windows 2000 and Office XP...
raid tools , great, will check out , i just installed it and haven,t time to check a lot of things out. i am getting to like suse 8 quite a bit, seems like a very good distro. i didn,t like the desktop theems but got some good ones here. kde-look.org. later thanks for the help

And just for your info the suse never provides the ISOs in the ftp.
