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.

Ok, party-on, F-10 has arrived...now, I want it, please.
I run Linux F8, now. As the only OS - "one OS per PC" is the motto...ans since Linux is the best...well... and besides, I dont believe in dual boots, way too messy - caused me to age ten times faster when I tried that long ago, with OS/2... ;-)
1) Do I HAVE to upgrade to F10 or will my F8 still get the security updates...
2) I run ONLY F8 on my machine - and would like to upgrade instead of doing a clean install. What do I do? Is that doable?
I tried an UPdate for F8 to F10, on a fully vannilla install, and that seems pretty risk-free...the installer needed some time to examine the installation on the system, but did'nt ask any extra info and simply did an update. The (user) settings remained intact...
Next is a system with some stuff not supplied on the DVD. That system had BlueFish and AVG on it, these may require a re-install...
Eh, that's for the next (few) days to ponder about...
