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.

All I can say is... wait, there is an important announcement:
"The Thought Police Auxillary Committee on Voluntary Self Compliance will have an important meeting in the Hall of Freedom tongiht at 8:00, attendance is compulsory!
"Democratic Citizen Compliance Enforcement Squad practice will follow the meeting at the Peace and Mercy Sports arena located behind the bulk detention processing facility near the rail station. All citizens over the age of 12 are required to participate. There will be no exceptions, it is a lawful requirement!"
... now where was I...? It doesn't matter... yep, I despair.
The lynch mob forms to the right, join early, but watch your step (if you catch my meaning)!

Note that after a lengthy discussion we have altered (and slightly softened the wording) of the LQ Rules. Specifically:
Do not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful, threatening, hostile or insulting.
While discussing obviously illegal activity will still not be allowed at LQ, we realize that the previous wording of the rule including the "violating law" bit was both confusing (which "laws") and being interpreted in the most strict sense by some. Anything that puts LQ in danger or in any way attacks another member will still be dealt with swiftly. If any member has any additional questions, comments or concerns please feel free to start a thread in LQS&F.
I'm new here and in fact I signed up just to ask this question on this thread. I know this is an old thread but i noticed that while a discussion of rules and liability was going on, the OP's question was left unanswered. Since the wording of the rules has been softened to make this no longer an issue, I was wondering if someone wouldn't mind sharing the information the OP requested now. Thank you.
