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.

Wow! It actually worked; however I ran into this problem. I tried to upload a file from the desktop to the phone (is that uploading or downloading?), and I got a message:"single size file must not exceed 10mb; use airdroid in same network environment, or upgrade to premium". I am using it in the same network; just one same wifi connection for both. Also, when I click on "file transfer" on the phone, it gives me a choice of airdroid web or airdroid desktop. I click on the desktop one, and get a message "no computer found with your account", but I did sign in to airdroid on my desktop, and it shows that it is connected to my phone. I don't get it. I was able to transfer a smaller file (4mb) from the desktop to the phone, so at least I know it's working.
Do I have to type in that URL in my computer browser every time I want to connect? Or is there a quick way to do it?
Thanks for your help
