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 have a computer which is dual bootable into Ubuntu 11.10 and Windows 7. It is set up to run an FTP server in either system load - vsftpd in Ubuntu and FileZilla in Windows. There are a number of folders which are fully synchronised between all my computers. When accessing the particular computer from another machine using an FTP client, I have made a curious obervation. I am using Beyond Compare by Scooter Software, a file comparison utility that contains a built-in FTP client and comes in both Windows and Linux versions. It does not seem to matter whether I am running the client in Linux or Windows - the question concerns the platform running the FTP server.
If the server is running Windows/FileZilla everything is fine and all the files and timestamps match on the two sides. When the server is rebooted into Ubuntu however, the very same files take on different timestamps according to the FTP client. Basically an hour is being added on, though in some cases the difference is out by a few seconds which makes it all the more bizarre. I am in the UK and we have just gone on to daylight saving time this past weekend. Is vsftpd re-interpreting the timestamps according to the current DST setting and if so, can this behoviour be overridden as I find it very annoying?
