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 would like to enter directly to bash command line without typing every time login and password.
I use mandrake 10. Is there a way to do this? I think I must write in some configuration file some command....can you help me?
Thanks all...sorry for my english
I don't know how it works in Mandrake, but in Fedora there's the possibility of automathic login. You can check in your login settings and look for some option you can specify which user which automathicly will login (with just two clicks you can have it working!)
To boot directly to a command line, you have to change the /etc/inittab file. In particular, the part that says id:5:initdefault:, change the 5 to a 3 and reboot. You should be greeted without the gui. You will still have to login though, but you won't have to go through a gui.
