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.

Hi, I tried to install a tar.gz package and after tarring and cd into the directory the ./configure command returns me that error. Did I miss something from the linuxanswers guide or did something wrong?
Hey guys, I've read the readme but there wasn't anything about it. The only relevant file in the directory is a Makefile, which I, uh, arbitrarily ran but that also just produced errors. So there seems to be nothing left in it to work with. :/
It's the vpnc package. Though I probably don't need it installed anymore. I've tried the 'make' and that too gives errors. So not that it needs to be installed but I'm curious as to what to do in such occasions.
