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.

When describing a problem, do not forget that the reader knows absolutely nothing about the problem domain, beyond what you provide. Be complete and concise.
We are not here to do your homework for you. If you want to work in the computer field, you need to do the work yourself. That means spending time researching, reading, trying different things and making lots of mistakes from which you learn. That is what we have done. We volunteer our time on forums to help newbiew and each other.
Don't just come here and ask us to do your assignments. Think about something, your instructor most likely reads these forums also and likely will be wise to your methods.
