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.

So i have a small home server i need to setup. I used to have arch linux installed, but i found it unstable and more difficult to maintain. So i heard about the stability if CentOS and decided to try it out. I got samba setup no problem, but cups i cannot get to work. The orinter driver for my epson workforce 500 requires lsb 3.2 whereas lsb installed in centos is only 3.1. What can i do to fix this? Should i just go with fedora instead?
I knew.that about centos when i installed it. I like that for stability. But i also need to be able to print. Is there no possible way to update that? That IS thebpurpose have having a centos server after all.
Well upon further research of Fedora, it requires you to upgrade every year ... this is not what I want at all. I love Red Hat distros and the yum package system, but I'm almost more inclined to go to Ubuntu for this.
