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.

im having a problem with red hat 8.
Basically i have a floppy with some files that i wrote in windows (because i have a better text editor in windows- recommend any decent freeware text editiors for linux??) and i want to put them onto linux as im using it as a server.
Where would i find the floppy and do i have to do anything special to the files to view them on my linux machine?
Something that highlights variables, comments etc in different colors so its easier to sort through any mistakes more easily - any ideas?
Vi or Emacs both have syntax highligting for various languages, but neither is particularly easy to use. In the command line, I just stick with pico and don't bother with syntax highlighting -- I usually find it more of a distraction than an aid anyhow, but everyone's different on that.
