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.

Now again another ques is not there any way to install any linux software like what we do in windows?? That means the exe right button click and the installation interface all quiet and perfect. Now linux is very good except this software installation process...
Again I have installed rplayer but I couldn't play more than one song at a time I have to select single song every time . It doesnot have any list or library how pathetic...
What is the problem and what should I do...But in windows the same player (here real player 10) has a list and there anyone can save 100 songs at a time....
