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.

Any cutecom/minicom guru's out there? Well I have been able to get cutecom [0.13.1] working on my box, well not completely. The problem is that whether I am in a modem, router, or any other piece of hardware I am getting nothing but an infinite scroll of "b1" that never stops. I have verified the parity and handshaking settings and they are correct. The kernel is probing and auto detecting the usbserial module and assigning it ttyUSB0 without any problems. I am always using hyperterminal in windows, against my will, and everything has worked fine. It has been sometime now and other posts have been very helpful in getting me this far so I thought I would throw this out there and see if anybody wants to take a shot. One possibility is that I am using a USB HUB off of my laptop that has a serial-to-usb converter coming off of it [laptop USB port -> USB HUB -> serial2USB converter -> console cable -> equipment]. This problem is occurring in both minicom and cutecom so it is probably converter related, or not (if I had the answers I wouldn't be asking the questions, right). Well I will be more than happy to post any additional information that is requested as well as perform any tasks required to get this thing working! Here is the information in regard to my box!
IO Gear 4 Port USB 2.0 HUB (Model GUH275)
Cables Unlimited USB-2920 USB to serial adapter
standard CISCO console cable
