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.

Hey there I have a friend that has an OOOOOLLLLLD apple. I told hime he couldnt use windows on it but was wondering if linux could work on it? (i am thinking not enough for him to have anything useful) but i told him i wld ask the experts I will find out the exact specs of it later. (not being an apple person either I am all for getting ppl away from it lol)
actually i was kinda wondering the same thing... only my question is.. is it at all possible to run linux on a mac? i've got a G3 at school.. and a PIII , (it will be running mandrake soon enough... once i get back to my dorm room) .. but yeah.. anyway.. can i run linux on a mac? just curious.
Aren't all the versions of Linux for Apples only for PowerPCs? -- if so, eagle0669 will probably not be able to run Linux on his friend's box -- at least if his definition of 'OOOOOLLLLLD' is the same as mine.
ahh since we all know that powerPC takes up so much of your system resources ... at least it does on mine and the macs in our computer lab.. but yeah.. if i do install linux (or what ever i'm planning to do....)..is it gonna take up a lot more of my system resources than what PowerPC is taking up right now? Since you need to be runningpwerPC for linux to run????? (or am i just amazingly confused and lost now? I've got the memory in it up to 128MB right now... but even at that it seems to lack the spunk it had when i first got it....
I am really curious. How old is this Apple? My sister had one only and as a little kid I used it to play a WW2 US Navy subs VS Japanese Navy Pacific theater. It had no color, and no hard drive. Booted off of a floppy. The game must have been boot-able cause I remember always booting right into the game.

That's not the machine itself taking up 128mb...it's the Mac operating system. If you install Linux, it will use what it needs, but I can pretty much guarantee it'll be less than what you're using in MacOS.
