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.

a few days ago i installed Red Hat Linux 7.2 as a newbie to Linux. I know that AOL doesn't support Linux at this time. But I want to know if there is a good isp that will support Linux. I have Linux and now I want to connect to the web so I can download programs and figure out how the heck to install them. Any help is appreciated.
AOL requires special (windoze) software in order to connect you to the internet. Just about any other ISP will work since most just use standard DHCP when clients dial in. You might want to ask one of their technical people if DHCP is supported before you sign up.
I'm using directv adsl and it works great under Linux Mandrake. D/l load speeds are faster than when I d/l under windows. Set up was a breeze, just use dhcp as the setting and it configured everything for me.
Juno is still around. They joined with NetZero to become United Online. They both require windoze to run their special software to connect to the internet.
This is exactly what I meant, when they were just juno I had no problems to connect with linux via dial-up, even though I had junoexpress DSL line with DHCP (it went down sometimes, but dial-up had never given me a headache). Now when they are with netzero they suck as well as netzero have sucked when they were a stand alone ISP.

Does Peng still work... or has AOHell gotten smart? Try Peng AoL... unauthorized AOL client for linux. You have to have a valid account though. Just search freshmeat.net. Be careful with the config though, or you'll be dialing a number in France.
