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.

Talk about user unfriendly. did it really throw your day completely off cause someone said "urgent". did you think that possibly he really thought it was urgent to the rest of the world, or maybe (cut him some slack here) he was saying that it was urgent because it was urgent to him>>
Oh, and you can only have one first thing...not two first things.
