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 do my part on answering those 0 reply threads, however it should be noted that quite a few of them are un-noticed double posts, easily found from a search, or threads that do not need replies (I got it working!!! for example).
Like those before me pointed out, many of them are repeat questions and if the poster had used the search feature, (s)he would have solved his/her problems without even posting. I have no sympathy at all for these people, but I will try to at least post a useful URL for them to read.
Some are really strange questions which are particularly application/hardware-specific and I won't know how to help them with this because I don't have the things they are having problems with.
I agree. I am going through "a lot" of those 0 replies threads as well because I would like to try to help. I was able to get some solutions to some of them, but some are really very hard to answer.
And somehow, if I was one of those people, I'd be rather reading a solution than a post of somone telling me that he has read my thread but was not able to find a solution - I can see through the VIEWS as to how many have read it anyways.
Just hard to say, som are really difficult to answer in my opinion.
Other than that, I must again thank all of those that are helping other users day in and out...it's a great "FREE" service hehe
