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.

If you like the classic Asteroids from the 80's try Maelstrom. It is all and better than the original classic. Problem is with high res. display the window is too small and I am unaware of how to make it full screen, definitely annoyining. Balazar Brothers is realy quite interesting with fabulous graphics and I have just begun playing it. It has problems on Debian Lenny on my system but seems ok so far on Debian Etch. My most favorite and my daughters as well is a realy cute game called Machinarium, it cost only 10 bucks and is woth every penny. I am just about to the end of it. Yeh I'me new too... Jon
All excellent games that I play on my computer using Ubuntu Linux 10.04 64 bit. They should work equally well for any Linux distribution/architecture and the hardware requirements aren't very high at all. Some of them cost money, but they all have native Linux clients and are excellent games.
Free FPS, team/class based, runs on Windows and Linux. This was the multiplayer part of RTCW (Return To Castle Wolfenstein). Was completed but there was some problem with the developers so they released it as a free, totally stand alone game. Free as in cost, the engine is open source, but the textures/models/etc are copyright. Still completely free to play.
The community is still alive and there are THOUSANDS of user made mods.
