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.

* Add experimental EFI support. Chainloading and Linux loading are
supported at the moment.
* Add a new command "blocklist" to show a block list.
* Use --with-platform to specify a boot environment. For now, efi,
ieee1275 and pc are supported.
* Use the filename "kernel.elf" instead of "grubof" on ieee1275.
* Install GRUB into pkglibdir instead of pkgdatadir.
* Support environmental variables. You can export variables by the
* Remove the commands "default" and "timeout". They are now variables.
* Add the commands "source" and "." to include a file.

New in 1.93 - 2006-03-10:
* Add support for the HFS+ wrapper.
* Major improvements to scripting support.
* Menu entries are now scriptable.
New in 1.92 - 2005-12-25:

* Add a new command "play" to play an audio file on PC.

* Rename the project name PUPA to GRUB. Now this version is the
developmental version of GRUB officially.
* The GRUB emulator ``grub-emu'' is added.
* Add support for newworld Mac. This should work with other
PowerPC-based machines as well, if they use IEEE 1275
* Too many changes to describe. Look at ChangeLog for more details.
New in 0.7:
* Problems in cross-compiling PUPA are fixed.
* Use -mrtd and -mregparm=3 to reduce the generated code sizes. This
means that any missing prototypes could be fatal. Also, you must take
care when writing assembly code. See the comments at the beginning of
startup.S, for more details.
* New utility, ``pupa-setup''. This sets up PUPA to make it bootable
from a real disk.
* New commands, "prefix", "insmod", "rmmod" and "lsmod" are added into
the rescue mode to manipulate PUPA modules.
* Linux support is added. Initrd is not support yet.
* Reduce the size of a core image significantly by compressing a large
part of the core image and decompressing itself at boot time. The
currently used algorithm is LZO (more precisely, LZO1X-999). So you
have to install LZO to build PUPA. See
<http://www.oberhumer.com/opensource/lzo/>, for more information.
