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 installed Cygwin/X at work so I can take a directory listing of a DVD backup (of mpeg commercials) and use sed to extract just the dates & filenames, creating a .csv file. Then I'll use merge the files, sort them and use enscript to produce a postscript catalog of all of the backups. The ps2pdf program converts the postscript file to a pdf file that I save on the server. Then if someone needs a spot retrieved from backup, they just need to use "find" in acroread to find out when it was created, and on which DVD it is backed up to.
Using comm or "grep -f" and then sed I'll create a script to delete certain files in devices, we use. To do it graphically would take days instead of minutes.
