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.

I'd been kicking about with CrunchBang linux since November, and after my own sheer stupidity caused me lose everything (nothing too important, mainly config files etc.), I took a month's break and decided to take the plunge with something slightly more complex.
At first I tried Arch, but after discovering this was an exercise in masochism I moved on to Debian (this is what CrunchBang is based on, after all).
I'm moving in leaps and bounds, and currently can't figure out why new font installs aren't working.
Previously I was able to copy a font file to ~/.fonts/ and it'd work, but apparently this isn't the case now I'm not having my hand held (I started with no GUI).
I've also tried 'sudo mv ~/myfont.ttf /usr/share/fonts/X11/', but again no luck.
I'm fairly certain this is depressingly simple to fix, but after half an hour's Googling I figured it'd be best to just ask.
P.S. - Sorry if I'm being longwinded, there are too few people in the real world to share my linux exploits with.
