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'm in search of a GOOD Linux antivirus.
I've unfortunately seen though, the ones that appealed to me, were not open source, and not only that, were commercial versions. Does anybody here use like an AVG-ish program for an antivirus? Or am I SOL and gonna need to buy one?
You don't for Linux if you have pretty good security settings and passwords. I use it so I won't unknowingly pass a virus to someone through e-mail. Never had a infection though.
Love thy neighbor type thing. Just because people use a buggy OS doesn't mean you need to help spread them around. If I can stop one, I don't mind. I do what I can to stop them, incuding offering the use of some trees and a rope for the spammers and virus writers.
