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 have formatted my new machine twice whilst trying to load Linux Freespire and I am now close to saying that's it and going back to load XP.
Every time I get the following massage:
/bin/sh: can't access tty;job control turned off (initramfs)
I searched this site and tried a couple of things but nothing worked.
I hope someone can let me know what is wrong as I am still learning upon computers, but sick of Microsoft.
I loaded Linux freespire and entered password, when I went to start up it would not reconise passwords and I had to re-format. Now it will not allow any loading of linux and gives me same message yet again. I have now tried 5 different discs and even ubuntu, but nothing so it looks like Linux has lost a customer with 5 computers.
This is now starting to P--- me off, I have even changed hard-drives to see if that will work.No Luck.
Well good bye Linux, I have just purchased another OS from Microsoft, it is a shame but till you solve the problems in your OS many people will look elsewhere.
