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 left a thread called Multiple Operating Systems. Now I am new to this forum, and I don't know if I am even doing this right, so I will try again. There have been a few people read my post, but no response yet. Maybe I'm impatient, at least my wife thinks so. Anyway here is what I wrote before:Hello, I have Windows Me, on one partition. I have Windows 2000 on another partition which I am running VMware. On VMware I installed RedHat 7.2, and also installed Mandrake 8.2. I can switch from either version while both are running. Now I am new to Linux, but I really want to learn about it, so I thought that the best way was to try out both flavors of the many that are out there. Now my question is how do I connect to the Net? I have AOL right now which I hate, but my kids love it (why I don't know). I also have DSL through them, but I am looking into a Static Connection so that I have the same IP address each time. Is there anywhere I can learn about Linux, and set up my internet through the two Linux flavors I have installed? I would greatly appreciate any response from anyone out there. Thank You very much..........workerfly
Now if I am doing this wrong someone please let me know. Also I must add that VMware works awesome, with no problems as of yet. I really need help learning about linux. Please help me. Thank You..........workerfly

At times you may never get an answer and your wife is right, your being impatient.
