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.

"Its a nifty idea. Basically it seems that they want to make a few nickels off of getting frustrated users to give money to their helper geek's favorite cause. Affero makes penny fractions on the dollar that makes up for their overhead, the cause gets free cash, and the geek gets /.-esque karma points that will appeal to a lot of people's sense of competition. I like it.", Finegan,
Actually, David_Ross will only get affero points if that command helps (but please do not do it, you'll trash your system and I'll get kicked off for encouraging you).
If you feel that someone's reply to your query has helped and you wish to do more than simply thank the person, click the Affero button and choose to either donate some money or simply rate the poster (the link will show you what the button looks like).
