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.

You will need two pieces of software: the telnet sever (telnetd) and the telnet client. Telnet clients ate two-a-penny, even Internet Explorer has telnet ability! Be warned though, telnet is a very dangerous way of doing things! The telnet protocol has no security on it what-so-ever, if you type a password in on a telnet session, then anyone 'listening in' on that session will then know your password. I would advise that you forget that telnet ever existed and go for SSH. SSH works in the same (almost) manner as telnet, in that is requires a ssh server (sshd) and ssh clients, however, ssh is a very unix-like thing and you have to hunt around for Windows based ssh clients. Having said that, it is much more secure than plain telnet, so you should be ok. Oh, and the server and Linux client software will be on your distro's install CD.
Just a small question on win ssh client. I find it giving me new window ( with shell and I loged in ) when I press on a icon. This means that win client is storing the paswd some where. If we are so much careful about passwds and do use ssh, is it safe to use win clients?
