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.

is there a graphical network browser so its more like a windows based environment where u have all the workgroups listed and when u go into it it has all hosts or something along those lines. just asking as im going to a LAN party. and it would be a nuissance to browse it the old way.
not @ home to see how this works. but will this list ALL the available networks so i can jump in and out and scour shared drives/folders? just asking since I mean. not everyone @ a 500 person lan have the same network names..
I think that Konqueror also has an "easy to use" interface for this. I've never tried it, but maybe also look into Lin Neighborhood, I'm sure I have the name wrong, but it's close to that. It might also be what you are looking for... At this LAN party, will everyone there be using SAMBA, is this an integrated OS LAN party, or what?
