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'm new to C++. I downloaded gcc-4.6.0 for my compiler. Right now I have a folder on my desktop that says "gcc-4.6.0", and inside the folder are more folders. I probably could figure how to set up the compiler but I don't want to do the wrong thing. With the "gcc-4.6.0" folder sitting on my desktop, where do I go from here to successfully set up my compiler. Thx!
I running Ubunto 11.04 and I have a folder called gcc-4.3.5 on my desktop. I just want to get it installed so I can start working in my c++ book. Inside the 4.3.5 folder are a number of other folders. I have never used a compiler before. Where do I go from here so I can start using the book? -Paul
taylorp: The vast amount of documentation can indeed be daunting. But you need to plow into it. I have found the HOWTOs very helpful. My first download got over 400 PDFs. That will keep you busy for a while. In general, I find books to be more often biassed one way or another, perhaps because of the differences in marketing and production of commercial things vs. the "free" aspect of most Linux stuff. But I preach.
@John VV: John you need to check yourself with all of your capital letters and exclamation marks. I know that you're good, but no matter how good you are there is always someone better. Have you built an operating system? Where is your version of Linux? Until you do so, I would slow down with the condescending attitude.
