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.

Greetings. I am brand new to this site but it looks like a sweet one. I am an MCSE Network Specialist who is fed up with the corporate engine and it's money machine. Hence, I have decided to go back to my roots and do things the way we did them back in the day, open source, open ideas, open projects. Without stuff like Linux companies like MS wouldn't have all their money. Sometimes I forget that Bill Gates and those dorks used to be in their garage like we were all doing and had the balls to make what turned out to be a smart decision. Anyone remember soldering a kb onto their Timex Sinclair? Have I dated myself?
Anyhow, off the pedestal. I am a DJ and DnB producer in my 'sparetime' and want to be able to dump Windows XP entirely. My only hiccup at this point is that I cannot find any good production suites for electronic music that run under Linux.
I purchased the SuSe 9.2 Pro set and am very happy with the results. I even have my wireless up and running. I read somewhere that it includes Wine, which is an emulator for Windows. How can I get Fruity Loops, Sound Forge, Acid, etc working with Wine? Is this possible or should I keep a small Windows partition for this kind of thing?
Installed, ran, and seems to “work” (again with VST plugins), but there are some major glitches in the graphics. Components dissapear, turn black or don’t update. Still some bugs to be ironed out, but it’s promising.
I know that FruityLoops has a pretty intesive GUI and programs like that tend to be somewhat glitchy on Wine.
I don't see a lot of succes on SoundForge because of the DirectX libraries.
