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.

Back sooner than I thought! I was advised by two patient members to use gnu parted software to partition my hard drive. But the main website for this seems to have dysfunctional download links! There seem to be no good mirrors either!
Wow, this partitioning is going to be a very tough nut to crack! I wonder how many weeks it will take me!
If anyboby knows a GOOD download site for GNU Parted 1.6.6, please let me know!
Hi again, aaa,
I went to that site you suggested, and clicked on the Massachessets link, ftp://aeneas.mit.edu/pub/gnu/ I was then presented with a scroll screen with hundreds of yellow file folder icons. Didn't/wouldn't have a clue which one to click on or download. How did you pick one? Did you pick more than one?
aaa, ok, correction, I guess you picked the one that said 'parted"
okay, I scrolled through all those yellow folders and picked the one that said parted, and it turned out to be parted 1.6.6. But what do I do then? Left clicking or right clicking didn't seem to do anything. Also I tried the other link you gave, this time I got a nasty non connect message, so I went to the home site, and there were six mysterious folders! aaa, I guess you're just much much more experienced than me! What was easy for you was IMPOSSIBLE for me.
