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.

LOL...that sounds like lawyer talk. The point of the rule is not just to prevent repeating the same words in multiple posts, but to cut down on time and bandwidth usage which goes with creating unnecessary threads.
Sheesh...common sense should tell you that making a new thread to link to another thread is no better than double-posting, regardless of the exact wording of the rules.
rool sez: Do not post the same discussion in more than one forum. Duplicate discussions can be frustrating for other members
Definition of discussion is: my original question + all the replies i am going to get. Now lets see... we got one set of "my original question" and one set of "replies from other members", not counting the rants on the way i do things, of course. I dont see any "duplicate discussions" here, which was the point of the rule.
Now the common-sense-wise, i dont see a problem with this approach, and would not be frustrated if others would do it.
