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.

The Linuxquestions wiki are quite nice but very very broad.
I believe a true LFS wiki would be better, I myself often wanted to
be able to add something to existing official Documention, especially
problems + how I solved them (or, in some situations, have not solved
Ok this is probably the wrong place to ask this, but maybe even LFS
devs read here and can say about the look and feel of a LFS wiki in the future
The joy of a wiki is that you can add to it and change it. If you want a more focused LfS portion to the wiki, edit the existing pages and put in links to the pages you want to see. Then create the pages.
What's wrong with using the LfS area of the LQ Wiki as the LfS Wiki?
Yes, the LFS hints are very good but they don't always answer specific questions. The old wiki listed specific questions by users listed by each section of the book.
A hint by Joseph M. Dupre about installing lfs with livecd was very helpful.
Personally, I have found the LFS mailing lists less than useful. I guess I'm not expert enough to ask questions.
I didn't like the mailing list either. And I wish I had the opportunity to see this wiki as it sounds like it was a great help, which I could use right now. I've put LFS on the back burner as it would no install on my test system. So when I make some changes to that system I'll give it a go again.
