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.

Oh well I used Linux for a couple o weeks few months back and left it coz I couldnt find a jukebox or any player that will manage my music files (and play WMA). So if there is something I overlooked please tell me. Also I couldnt get the mPlayer GUI to work without crashing each time.
I also plan to completely switch to Slack next fortnight and well.........can I not partition my HDD like i do in windows...I mean will I be limited to 4 partitions only?
I use xmms for the music playing (it's got plugins for wma, easy to get for mandrake at least) and prokyon3 to manage the music database. xmms rocks but I'll probably move away from prokyon once I've found something better to generate playlists. But so far, it does the job
