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.

thanx guys. I don't know. What can I do? I am in school for programming but they aren't teaching us anything yet. My brother in law told me to install slackware and mess around. But I don't get to talk to him that much. I have been clicking on things in my system but I guesse I just need to read. I am really looking for a total noob starter guide. How to setup internet security, commonly used programs and applications etc
Hello and good day. There's a lot of good readables in /usr/doc/Linux-HOWTOs. When I started using slackware, I did nothing but read the docs in there. The slack book is also not a bad start. I should have learned slackware quicker if I knew the book earlier.
I don't know where are the best tutorials about programming. Maybe there are some good start in /usr/doc/Linux-HOWTOs.. Of course most are also found in the net.. but all i can say is that you should try to learn by practice and not by memorizations. Think of a project immediately even though you don't know what to do and try building your own programs yourself. A good reference after some basic tutorial is all that you'll need .. i guess.
