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.

Originally posted by antken sadly there are no book stores in my area that cary the O'reilly book series that i know of
the only book store that i know of that carries O'reilly books is amazon and a new one that i have found today called pcbooks.co.uk
if anyone knows of any other book stores that are in the UK, specifically in manchester please let me know
so, according to what other people have said here the O'reilly and friends book series are probably the best for computer type information, is this right?
