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.

Hi all... I hope this is an apropos question for this forum. If not, I apologize.
I am thoroughly enjoying Linux and this community. (Even though I can't get my damned floppy drive working. hehehe)
I have not been interested in putting up a web (home) page for years, but now I am! I was wondering if there was a place most used to post a home page--something more geared toward Linux people than just geocities, etc.
I've been toying with the idea of setting up a "free server project" to host webpages and use a donation system to pay for the bandwith, but I need a dedicated box for the server (not sure if my 233 will handle it, even without X), so it may be a while.
You might just have to serch the web for "free hosting" and wade through the results for something promising.
It looks like my website is hosted on a linux box. You can check out any sites you are interested in at www.netcraft.com , and see if they run on linux or not.
As for a place where all linux people band together, and take up arms against the arch enemy OS's No, I don't think something like that'd exist since variety is a good portion of the reason to use linux.
