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.

Hey guys, I'm on the verge of leaving Windows forever. The only thing that I couldn't find in Linux is a program to keep a list of all my Music/Movies/Games CDs. I used in Linux Whereisit, what could I use in Linux ? Any sugestions ?
"Tellico is a collection manager for KDE. It includes default collections for books, bibliographies, comic books, videos, music, coins, stamps, trading cards, and wines, and also allows custom collections. Unlimited user-defined fields are allowed. Filters are available to limit the visible entries by definable criteria. Full customization for printing is possible through editing the default XSLT file. It can import CSV, Bibtex, Bibtexml, RIS, and MODS and export CSV, HTML, Bibtex, Bibtexml, and PilotDB. Entries may be imported directly from Amazon.com, imdb.com, or using any z39.50 bibliographic server." http://freshmeat.net/projects/tellico/
I second the Tellico recommendation - even if it is intended for KDE.
Back when it was called Bookcase (which I do not understand why they changed), I used it in an office for document templates. It is actually very flexible.
A friend of mine recommended Gaby for this, too - it is supposed to be a bit lighter.
Well tellico is great but not that great. I just want an application that adds all the files from a CD/DVD and puts them in a database. I just couldn't do that with Tellico or Gaby. Am I missing something ?
