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 trying to compile a UDF module and it asked me for the source folder of my Linux. I don't know what it is at this time, and its best guess was wrong. How would I go about finding it?
Related: When using GCC and G++, what are the libraries used under Linux that are equivalent to those used by the M$ Development Studio? IE: iostream.h, math.h, fstream.h, etc. Are they the same? If in doubt over which one, I am most interested in G++ over GCC, but I do want them both.

most of the standard c++ include files are the same between linux and ms but not exactly the same in implementation. an example is string.h. in windows, there's a stricmp which is a string compare that ignores case. in linux, it's called strnocasecmp. but if you stick to ansi compliant code, the basic headers like iostream.h, string.h, fstream.h, etc are basically the same. system header files are different though.
I figured it was, but that's giving me an error. Now knowing this, I'll try to get rid of the # that is standard in the #include <iostream.h> precompiler. I always needed to put it in like that when using M$ Development Studio. I think Linux uses that as a comment, don't it?
