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'm about to change to a Linux system (a friend recommended Ubuntu, since it is user-friendly and easy to install). I've never used Linux before, nor do I have any expertise in programming.

I bought a new laptop with pre-installed WindowsVista. It's an acer Aspire 6930, and it comes with somme features like a fingerprint-reader and a remote control for multimedia purposes. However, I'm wondering if this stuff will work under Linux.
