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 going to buy a laptop before I go away for school. I have always recommend IBM products, but would like something more. I was thinking ASUS and an AMD processor. How has ASUS notebooks, and AMD mobil processors been doing? How is ASUS's capatabilty with linux?
I just installed Debian Etch on an AMD64 Laptop with less problems than I've ever had on a new computer. Maybe it's just because I'm getting to the point where I sometimes know what I'm doing ... OTOH, my next desktop will definitely be an Asus with Nvidia built in. After fighting off the thought for some time, I'm convinced that Nvidia's overt support for Linux really means something.
The main thing I recommend is that you get a generic laptop from a local independent source ... Those shiny eye-level Dells, HPs, and Compaqs at the big box stores are hard to pass by, but you won't regret doing it.
