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 tried to do an up2date to see if the missing files woudl be installed, but it crashed half way though (after downloading all updates and while it started the installation).
Now that i try to relaunch the up2date, it give me all kinds of dependency errors, so i wil l haveto istall the updates one by one.
