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'm a linux enthusiast aiming to get a junior admin position in the market. So I am learning the operating system right now.
I am doing a project where I try to simulate a company internal network, and in order to make the project more realistic, I thought, maybe there is already a peace of software or a package of scripts that would basically simulate user activity on the machine?
I've tried to google one but havn't been able to find anything. I could try to write a set of scripts myself to make a small simulation of activity (say, the user opens a file, writes it, connects to a certain server for a few minutes), which would produce some activity as well as some log output (which would alow me to learn more in terms of log management, etc.), and put that on a loop, but I think that would take me quite a while, as well as the activity wouldn't be that realistic. I was wondering if there is already such a program somewhere? If there is, could someone point me to it?
1. What you're looking for is automated test tools. There are some that fake being a user.
However, I've no idea if any are free; its a lot of work to build a good one.!
Maybe there are some cut-down free-for-students/evaluation versions.
2. Just think how much you'd learn by trying to build such a tool; you'd be an expert by the end
