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.

background on project:
i was going to replace my existing home phone wiring because its about 30 yrs old and sounds like crap, dial up is slow with it too. I decide if i'm gonna do this i might as well go with a telphone system so i searched and found a free softwear based linux telecom stuff, asterisk. I don't have a sound card installed in the system cause it will be used as a server for the telecom and files. For analoge phones i canuse a normal internal modem, i reinstalled slackware 9.* and it seemed to have found it but i don't know how to even test if the system sees it. i run gnome but the new version in slack dosn't have a dialer,
so if anyone has any idea on the soft* itself or can help me install the modem, i have a have four isa and one pci dial modems one which is plug/play. This is a definite newbie type problem but I've been away from linux fora few months so i forgot everything, it happends when the system works so great as a server and asterisks . org
