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, im completely new too linux, while i was browsing through help files i rember alot of other gamers telling me that linux can run all of there windows games, while i like the features of linux being able too save too muiltpal formats and moving stuff around, how do i get games too work on Linux ??? i have linux mepis 3.3, im still messing around with features on this so if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be great.
Thanks for that. but im one of those sad people on dailup
and, its downloading really really slowly.. Also while im here, network desktop sharing, im wondering is this possible to do with linux too winxp. yes yes i know its some where in the help file.. but i keep finding myself reading what linux can do.. not how too do it... ill figure it out sooner or later. and this also brings me too anther topic some of my old files on my windows partion linux dose not see it... i know they are there. thanks for your time.
Its the first one, some of my game images, and programming stuff i did in windows linux cant seem too see, it can
see everything else. just would have liked too bring over some of my older documents but linux cant see it.. its wierd.
This is odd. Just to make sure we are talking the same language here: when you say 'on the same drive' I suppose you actually mean 'on the same partition' because there can be multiple `partitions on one single (hard disk) drive.
First, make sure your Nautilus/Konqueror shows you all the hidden files as well. (files beginning with a .). If that still dowesn't show them use the terminal, become root (su - ) use the cd command to go to the correct directory and do ls -al. That should show everything there is, even if it is hidden or only accessible to root.
i can asscess the partion and see the rest of the files,but its one of my documents folders wich i use quiet frequently on windows that linux just cant see.
and yeah, thanks for the help... but its just like its not there, but windows 2000
can read it fine?.. so is there any kind of file restrictions on linux that stop things from bring into editing? ( the folder contains .doc's .rtf .dgt )
