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, I've been using Linux for less than a month, and I do very little with it (most internet browsing and word processing).
Earlier today as I was surfing the internet, my pages stopped loading. I checked the wireless icon at the bottom right corner of my screen and it said I was still connected to my home network. I disconnected from the Internet, planning on re-joining the network, only now my computer says that wireless is unavailable.
I tried restarting my computer (didn't help). That's when I noticed the indicator light for the wireless was off. I pressed the button to no avail.
In addition, when I open the network settings window, airplane mode is automatically on. If I turn it off, close the window and re-open it immediately, airplane mode is back on. Clicking on the on/off switch under the wireless section of network settings is useless as well.
Finally, my wireless network at home is working fine; I'm typing this on my iPod touch which is connected to the network I was using my laptop on about 45 minutes ago.
