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.

Hey, sometimes I find myself needing to edit a particular file which needs root permission, currently the only way I'm able to do this is log out of my normal user account (very annoying) and log back in as root
Is there a utility or command similar to "su root" in bash for KDE/Gnome/Fluxbox which lets me assume root so I can edit text files logged in as a normal user, really hope so

it's good isn't it!
I stream music from www.di.fm all the time, on Windows using Winamp/Foobar the music would always skip it was awful, under linux I don't get any skips ever it streams perfectly 24/7 & I can still surf the web it feels like I'm not streaming at all
Now just a few (small I hope) hurdles to get sorted out, samba & fastttrack being the most important for me, I just tried giFT again but my cvs complains of no password file so I can't even get started
