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.

Here's my experience with my first Remastered copy. When I needed to reinstall using it, first of all the installer in splash wouldn't advance to where it should but instead went to desktop. I realized there was no desktop icon installed either. The drop menu showed nothing as well. Going into the Main Menu, Install RELEASE was shown installed there but inaccessible. Finally after hours of research I found a post about menus. I went to /usr/share/applications, located the Install RELEASE icon there and was able to create a new launcher for it in System Tools. Then created a new desktop launcher also. These both seem to work but I shouldn't have had to go thru this. I've used Remastersys for a couple of years, installed it on several linux os with never a problem. Install RELEASE can't work properly because of the poor main menu setup. It's not like any Alacarte I've ever seen, many applications get duplicated in the "Other" column but can't be accessed or removed. Please take a look at your Main Menu setup. I love Australis-Mate and would hate to let it go because I can't get a working remaster. Not exactly a newbie but not all that advanced either. But I certainly learned something about menu settings today.
