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 am looking for recommendations for a new Linux workstation. One requirement that I have is I want 64-bit Linux.
That means that first I must choose between AMD64 and EM64T (from Intel). This already possesses a challenge, since I heard that AMD64-based workstations present multiple compatibility issues (especially cheap and popular C521/E521 from Dell), while EM64T are still few on the market and Linux support for them is questionable.
So are there any recommendations for me? First, which of two - AMD64 or EM64T - should I better use with Linux-64bit, and, if possible, what systems are there on the market that are not expensive and known to be fully compatible with latest 64-bit kernel?
Note that I do not mind to get a system with Windows or without any OS at all and install Linux on it, if necessary (I did it many times), but I don't feel comfortable patching the kernel myself, so I need a system that will work out of the box with one of the existing distributions.
