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.

Distribution: mmm! cant decide, thats why i`m here
probably a total knobby question but I was advised to download a kernel and use the rpm -Uvh filename.rpm command to extract it , but the file is a .tar.gz..........Oh dear what is the unzipping procedure for this please.
I would stay up and read all night but I had a bit to much beer last night and I need my bed..
Cheers from Sunny-Scotland.....Gretna-Green
does linux included zip?
it's extension is .zip not .tar.gz
i know tar.gz is for linux
but wondering is there any proggie to compress the files to .zip format for linux, so can distribute compressed files to my windows user friends.
i thought gzipping and zipping is the same thing??? I dont know if its because i am special or because of something else when i zip something on my linux box, i can unzip it on my windows machine. Winzip can unzip gzip, zip and even can untar for me.. Give it a try
