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.

*RESOLVED* Jeremy Utley's Bootable CD - Sources Packages?
No need to reply anyone, I emailed Jeremy and he replied (quickly, too!). He didn't put the source packages on the CD.
"No, I did not put the source packages on the CD. Because the CD is
network-enabled, I didn't think it was warranted to waste space on the
CD with the source, when you could just as easily download them."
Sucks to be me...I use dial-up and don't have the time before leaving for a semester in England to download the packages and install the system. Oh well.
Hey all, I downloaded and am trying to use Jeremy Utley's bootable CD designed for setting up a LFS system. My question is, where are the sources? You know, the *.tar.gz files?! Chris Lingard's page for his CD specifically says where they are, but Jeremy's doesn't. They've got to be there somewhere, right? I mean, the CD was about a 600mb burn....and wouldn't it be pointless to make a bootable designed for LFS without the needed sources and patches?
