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.

Using dd it takes about 25 hours to copy from a 100gb drive to a 100 usb drive. Is that right? I tried Clonezilla and that takes around 6 hours. Is there any other live cds that backup/clone faster? I have been using acronis and that takes around 2 hours 100gb hhd to 100gb usb. I am looking for something Live and around 2 hours if possible.
