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.

ps. I first installed RH8 on this machine with only 256 Mb RAM inside, then I upgraded to 2 gbyte and installed RH9, in my memory configuration i can well see 2 Gbyte of RAM.
here's what i need to do, i have a 4 Mbyte .sql file (text file), now finally i can open it ( takes 15 seconds to load properly on Kwrite, while on windows 2K server on the same machine, it takes 8 seconds, and on XP on another machine of Athlon 2.8 Mhz that have 512 Mbyte of ram , it takes 12 seconds)
i had to split my original file of 8 mbyte into two, there is no way my machine can open an 8 Mbyte text file, crashed immediately (btw, i opened it with Windows normally).
and then i need to replace a certain word (find/replace), the files of 4mbyte takes 2.5 minutes to find/replace this word in the file (so so many of it), while it takes only 1 minute on windows (same machine) and 1.7 minutes on XP (512 Mbyte/Athlon 2.8 Mhz).
then after finding /replacing all words, on RedHat i cannot possibly save the file again, when i click on save the Kwrite goes banana, and hang, only rebooting solve the problem.
I noticed a slight change in speed between RH8 and RH9, RH8 was a little faster actually.
ps. I tried using other text editing programs other than Kwrite, same results.
now is this normal ? I cannot believe it because i know Linux need less resources to work, anything might be wrong in my setting ? virtual memory ? cash ?
