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.

Hello everyone, thank you for all your support in the past. I have forgotten about Linux for the past few months as school has taken all of my time, but I am ready to come back, delete my old install (I think it is messed up) and start over again with Linux. I have downloaded Slackware 9.0 and purchased another hard drive and I think I am all set. I have two quick questions to run by you as I go through and install again. I will put them in separate posts since they are not related.
I currently use Outlook Express in Windows to work with my Yahoo! email account (POP3). I have accumulated over 1100 emails in my Inbox alone, and I would very much like to be able to keep these if possible as I begin using Linux for day-to-day tasks. First, what email program will I be using or do you suggest I use? (I am planning on using Slack 9.0 and Fluxbox, but this may change.) Second, do you know if it is possible (or can you recommend any reading on the subject) to import/transfer all of my current Outlook Express emails into the other program to use in Linux?
