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.

Yes but couldn't revoke these permissions as in a:-
select * from mysql.db;
i can see the tables test and test\_%, automatically created tables by MySQL with no users associated to them, in which case i couldn't remove it even though there wasn't a database called test anymore as i drop'd it. I've now used 'delete' to remove those from the table as its not something i need to use. Therefore not allowing anonymous users, and already default tables to be on the server.

Bye the by... you may want to consider getting out of the habit of "...mysql.db..."
When you start MySQL, you can start "empty" or start with the name of the data base you want to use; e.g., an "empty" start is
and a "named" start is
If you start empty, you select a data base to work with
> use dbname;
And, the less fiddling around you do with the mysql data base, the better (you can really mess things up if you manage to do something silly in that data base if you know what I mean -- been there, did that, don't wanna do dat again...).
