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.

I am trying to copy some lines from my console, but i was unable to do it.
Anyone please tell me how to copy lines from console.
Actually i ran a program it shows some error. I want to copy this error from console and paste it into other place.
You don't mention which distro you're using, but whichever it is, see if it comes with gpm. I use Slackware and it comes with GPM. What I do inside X or not is position my cursor where I want the text to go, highlight the text I want to copy, then click the middle mouse button where the cursor is.
Besides gpm and redirection, another option is to use screen, which amongst many useful things, can be used to copy and paste text as well, only inside the same screen session though, so it will not help you if you want to paste from a terminal into an X based text editor.
