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.

sudo apt-get install ns nam xgraph
Please do not install any ns (nam ?) from Ubuntu.
The ns package name is "ns2". Is version 2.35, will conflict with ns-2.34,
unless you rename /usr/bin/ns to /usr/bin/ns235.
Some libraries are installed too. Not versions that ns-2.34 can use.
( More possible conflicts.)
