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 there.. I am installing LFS for the first time. I noticed what appears be an error in the book. However I'm guessing it's not an error in the book (surely somebody else would have noticed it first if it was).
When I type this command I get the help page of sed - the same as if I run sed with no arguments. In an attempt to determine the problem, I entered the commands one at a time. I believe I have located the problem at the first line:
No error in the book..........I had no probs with it.........some thing is wrong here..........did you adjust the linker from the binutils-build dir?? If you get an error adjusting the SPECFILE, you missed a step..........more than likely you did not adjust the linker from binutils pass 1..........
"I think they should warn people of this in the book."
I would like something like "user comments", something small, like on
php.net, you sometimes have folks paste their code, or give hints.
I think that would be a very neat idea, and the user could decide whether
he wants to see the pure book, or the book+user comments.
After all, people often do mistakes, and its good to point out at more
of these mistakes (i for example, managed to mess up with my host system
after I successfully built my first LFS two month or so ago...)
I had just got up to the toolchain stage when I noticed this. Everything working fine now
I think they should warn people of this in the book. I know it says to copy-paste, but I for one have absolutely no idea how to copy and paste from links into bash.
Use your mouse and select the text in links. If that doesn't work, hold down shift and select the text in links. Use the middle button to paste. If you run links in a separate virtual terminal you can just switch back and forth with alt-f1 alt-f2. If your mouse doesn't work, install gpm.
