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.

Originally posted by Mara If you just want to learn console commands, configure your RedHat to boot to text mode (/etc/inittab). But if you like adventures, build your LFS system. It'll learn you much about system internals.
Iam a newbie to linux . Can u tell me what is LFS .
oops, one thing though... you actually need a working Linux system to start this project. I'm a newbie myself, and have just started on a LFS project. To prepare my machine for theproject, i installed Mandrake cuz i was advised it was one of the easiest to install for a newbie.
Hey guys this sounds like a stupid question, but i want to downlaod a version of suse. But i am a newbie and the download page is alittle confusing. If anyone could help it would be muchly appriciated.
They don't provide isos like some other distros, but you have few choices, just download boot.iso from any of their mirrors and do an installation from ftp(make sure you wrote down the address of the closest mirror beforehand), then the installer will only download the packages you selected during installation. Or alternatively if you have enough bandwidth and hdd space you can download the whole suse directory to your harddrive and choose to install from local harddrive, or lastly just save yourself all the trouble and grab a copy from software stores.
By the way I don't think version 9 is available on the mirror FTPs yet.
