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.

I have a dedicated RH 8.0 desktop AMD K2-450/256M.
It has been running linux full time since 99 it runs open office
and has all the gain/licq/amsn but I miss the quicktime offerings.
I also have a toshiba 2435 laptop that dual boots winXP and
SLackware 8.0. It replaced the Sony Viao FX250 that fried it's
motherboard. I have to have winXP to support the adobe
production bundle I use for video work. Photoshop/After Effect/
Premiere. If anyone knows any Open Source alternatives to
these products. I would love to know.
Distribution: Ubuntu 11.4,DD-WRT micro plus ssh,lfs-6.6,Fedora 15,Fedora 16

you already are 'with us' if you have any shread of linux installed and acutally use it
I currently run just Mandrake 9.1, but I am thinking of putting Windows back on, there's a couple of things that I can do better in Windows (such as gaming, CD burning, and file sharing (no decent p2p clients for linux, and I can't get kazaa lite working with wine))
I've got a dual boot setup with Win98SE and Mandrake 9.0, although I haven't booted back into Windows for about 2 months now.
I used Windows a few times to get the IPCop 1.2 updates list (neither it nor the other box mentioned below could grab it), but since v1.3 that appears to be fixed
I cheat a bit - separate Win98SE box for gaming. I frankly can't be arsed trying linux on it again - it uses Intel's 845 chipset, and there were/are issues with it (google for 845 and DMA). I've recently done a BIOS update on it as well.
In office Linux and win2k. At home I am i had Redhat and 98 but when i installed XP i lost my linux. I reinstalled my Linux and this resulted in the loss of XP.. still playing with my system lets see where it ends
