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.

Just curious to see whether it will be worthwhile upgrading. It used to be fun upgrading every time some new version of this or that distro came out but nowadays I frequently get the feeling that I made a lot of effort for little gain, especially with the ones that have relatively short release cycles.
I have a 256kbps broadband connection.. so it takes a long time for me to download the dvd version of fedora... each time when a new version of fedora is released i start downloading it.. but i have to wait a long time for the download to get completed..once its downloaded immediately i wud try it out by installing it.. so again i have to download FC8 :-(... hehe... it wud b very nice if fedora wud send free dvd to our physical address jus like ubuntu cd's being sent to our physical location :-D.... hehe.. jus kidding..
fedora 8? I haven't even tried fedora 7 yet, though I was going to give it a try because of its support of making fedora version LiveCDs. These life cycles are too short, and I think I might wait until they stop supporting fedora 6.
When Fedora 8 comes out, I'm not sure if I am going to upgrade right away. I have been using Fedora 7 on my new computer for a few months, and really like it, but it took a while to get everything set up to my liking (especially my Linksys wireless card). For me it depends on what changes from Fedora 7 to Fedora 8.
I see nothing exciting with this release, but knowing myself, I'll install it anyway. If they says that F8 will have improved support for laptops, that's good enough reason for me. I still have lots of fun going through all this install and configuration stuff anyway... Probably a sad result for having a boring life .
