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 file that I included is a tar.gz file that I renamed to TXT so that the server would let me post the file. The tar.gz just contains the script, control file, and other needed files for the Debian file. How do I make a Debian file?

I have read many documentation pages, but they all proved to be useless to me. I knew how to set up the file and folder layout. I just needed a way to package the files into a deb. I needed this command
