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've just bought an Asus Eee PC 701-W with Linux installed on it. I can't find out which version of Linux it is. Please answer in VERY simple terms to me. I've been browsing the threads and I don't get what some of the people are saying. There is a free program I wish to download called E-Sword (apparently I can't put a URL in here but if you google it, it will come up) - operating file 'setup795.exe' From reading the threads I discovered WINE might be useful in helping me do this. I went to the WINE website and to the download section and the only thing I can find takes me to download fedora (which doesn't end up downloading anyway) and I'm confused. There doesn't appear to be a download such and such version of wine file anywhere. Help please. Thank you.
I think I know the answer, but I'd like to hear yours.....
Keep in mind that you have a machine that is on the fence between general-purpose computer and special-purpose appliance. With only a (small) solid-state drive, there is not much room for installing extra SW. I'm not bashing the EEE--I want to get one--but it does have limitations.
Tell us what E-sword is. Maybe there is a Linux equivalent.
Oh, now I see. Linux does have similar programs: gnomesword, sword, bibledit, biblememorizer, bibletime, the entire KJV, ... But you may still need to set up the Debian repositories to get any or all of these.
don't much mind if don't get back. I've seen the adverts for your system. Does it have a hole for a cd? Maybe save your data then put 'Damn small Linux' or something that does not take up much utilities on it. You will loose your present system but then you could always back that up to a bootable cd; if not then no loss if it does not work. If not then consider a bare bones version of linux,eg Debian 4 without the updates-takes a bit of getting used to; perhaps mepis or even a live cd, although they are slow. hope these are helpful suggestions.
