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.

Yeah I suppose your right, you do have 'just a little bit of help with LFS'.
Sorry about that. Like taz said its great to have you around and keep up the great work. I recieve the mailing list from lfs-dev, which is great read on those blustery nights. Lets hope your brains don't get too picked or ther'll be nothing left!
Just getting started, really looking forward to finally learning something about linux. Don't have much time on my hands...........so I will probably be the slowest yet. Can't wait to light up MY version of Dixie Linux. The good ol' boy distro!!!!!!!!!
Just did my first LFS install this weekend by doing the lame just follow instructions route but I'm already looking to whittle it down a bit this week & play what do I REALLY need to get things done efficiently & effectively.
Count me in as a LFS user. Only just started a couple of months ago but I'm loving it at the moment. Got X working but having a few probles with KDE. KDE 3.0 is what I want to install but moans about QT > 3.0.1 needed even though I just installed it as per INSTALL instructions. I'm sure I figure it out soon
Oh and Gerard, keep up the good work, wouldn't go back to another distribution now I'm using LFS.

Been a LFS user sence 2.4.4. Totaly crashed that and now I have 3.1 installed with X and windowmaker running, but have some small problems that i should get solved at this site.
You may be intersted in the blfs-support mailinglist (or blfs.support newsgroup on the news.linuxfromscratch.org server) and the online mailinglist archives for that list. Any problems you might get, there's a good chance somebody else already had that problem/question so using the archives (search engine at http://search.linuxfromscratch.org) would be the quickest way to get an answer
