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.

I am a novice linux user. I am hoping to get a linux distro installed onto my PC.
I was wondering if you guys know of any good website that can offer me a detailed
specification sheet about (OpenSuse 10.2 AND Ubuntu 7.04) and what software it has.
I need specification information on the programs installed, not a typical review from power-users
where EVERYTHING is wonderful. I am not a power-user.
I specifically want to know what softwares(applications...) are included by default.
Default as: after a "typical" installation.
I need to know whether it supports flashplayer,java...
Does it have eclipse IDE?
Does it support Java Development Kit?
I have tried to seek information from Opensuse.org and Ubuntu.com and it got very technical. The
UBUNTU and OPENSUSE team wanted me to develop their GTK blah blah blah...
I've heard of Amarok, a media player included in Suse 10.2 ... but it is said to NOT support AVI and MP3 and wma...
Where exactly can I get the codecs that are specifically designed for suse 10.2 linux?
My PC Spec:
Fujitsu Scaleo Ji 1602
Intel P4 3.06HT
512MB RAM ddr2 667, 80GB Hard drive ide
