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 was created one folder in linux with current time was 1978(For example). I was moved this folder to usb(FAT32 file format).While seeing this folder in window its not showing the folder time created time stamp, because the USB file system only support the year after 1980 .
But again i am putting the same folder in linux ,its showing the correct time stamp. How is it possible?
Because FAT32 only supports timestamp after 1980, but still its showing 1978 in linux system
It may not be displayed in the windows file manager but it is displayed in the the cmd box if you look at the files via the dir command. The date is displayed as 1/1/1980. I actually created a file via linux as 1/1/1902. After plugging it into the windows computer the date displayed was 1980 and then plugging back into the linux PC it was 12/31/1979. The difference between windows and linux and the vfat module.
