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.

Because I do a lot of buying & selling of stocks online, also bill-pay, I'm concerned about it being as difficult as possible for anyone to get into my accounts. Also, the integrity of the distro, in this case, Pardus.
Thank you for your response.
I cannot vouch for the integrity of Pardus (nor any other distro) I can say that Pardus is not a distro that has sprung up overnight. As is the case with any operating system it's up to you the user to be as pro-active as you can in securing your machine. Keeping on top of updates and patches for both the operating system and the software you use. The key thing is to make things as difficult as possible, so that any potential attacker moves on to what they consider an easier target. If you can, take Pardus for a test spin. Join their forum, get help from other users in securing your machine.
