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.

hi i am trying to install feather linux to hard drive. i have managed to do it and during installation process i was asked to put name and password. and then restart. but after restarting it asks for login. for example if i named it box it says box login? i thought that meant the name i chose but it isnt then it asks for password. i have no idea what the login is as i never created any except for the name and password . i have installed dsl before and the login was that but i tried feather linux and its not that. does anyone know what i am doing wrong?
Archlinux does the same thing, try "root" as a username.
If this works, create a new user account and NEVER log in as "root" again, unless the circumstances allow no other solution. Keep the root password, though. this is why
hi i tried root is seems to log in but then its a prompt for me to add a comand how do i create a login? im new to linux so any help is appreciated. the reason im installing this as i only have 32mb ram!
Freecycle, Craigslist, Goodwill, yard sales, friends, relatives, co-workers... beg, steal, or borrow a computer with more than 32mb RAM! If you upgrade your hardware, then you can run any distro you like.
