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're right -- I checked his threads/posts -- he seems to not have the courtesy to answer helpers' follow-up Q's. I wonder if he doesn't know about automatically subscribing to his own threads & opting for the e-mail that that sends.
I don't think it's a matter of being rude or not. I wonder why it is so important. If the OP is not enough intersted in finding a solution to his problem, despite the helper's efforts, why should we care? I understand it can be irritating, but I prefer to go on and ignore the thread as the OP ignored it and the people who tried to help. It's not worth losing more time.
You're right about losing more time; but I was really interested in the problem, & I am "upset" (read pissed off) that I am not going to get the chance to do so. Furthermore, this may be a cultural difference, but where I come from it's f'g rude to ask a Q & not listen to the answer.
