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.

Maybe i am to dummy to start leaning now, but i relly like challenges..
1 - i think i made my first post on the wrong forun and i am correcting now (General - i have seen the rules). Sorry
2 - I also think Linux is a MUST . i am delighted with the all environment and trying to deal this challenge
Finally, i dont really know how to start working.
for instances, my printer is not set properly (HP 7660) . My webcam CREATIVE doesn't work . My sound speakers don't "speak".... when i try to print something there is a lot of confusion and nothing comes out, unless the print test page....When i send an e-mail ( i am from Portugal) there are a lot of words that are cut.... Simple things for the experts, but for a beginner.........
i want to give up from Windows , that's for shure....
Can anybody help me on my task ?
From where should i begin? Do i have to buy a book and start reading ? I want in the near future could be able to answer some posts of people like me that are giving their frts steps in this great LINUX and enjoy this great comunity and working on LINUX
The best thing to do is to just try to figure it out. Once you start playing around you will find that things are not as difficult as you thought they were. I lost count of how many times I did reinstalls when I first started out.
You can't! I've had linux for about 3 months now, and I've been learning at an agonizingly slow pace until recently, when I wiped my HD and started anew a few days ago. I've gotten a lot done, mostly because I've actually been concentrating, using a ton of google, doing things very methodically, not doing anything without understanding, and pretty much just spending all the time I used to spend half-heartedly and randomly in a focused and concentrated state. The more you do, the more you accomplish!
