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.

Sorry this must be a well asked question, but where do I get the latest versions on the cheap?
I got red hat 6.2 and its having problems with my 3d vid card. Im thinking a newer version of xfree (4 i think) may help. I tried Linux mall but could not find a version below $30 and my creaky 56K couldnt handle a download.
why do i want it? maybe I dont know any better, but I gave the reason at the beginning of this thread.
if you have anouther suggested (dirt cheap) release of linux that is more forgiving to my hardware id love to know, ive tried all the fixes on a bunch of help files trying to resolve the vid card problem, but to no avail. all I want is a gui.
If you're determined to use RH7.0, perhaps for some of the same reasons that people by M$ products, be aware that that version had a really ugly version of up2date with it that leaked file descriptors. After a couple of weeks, if you had not fixed the up2date agent, your machine would no longer boot.
sorry my bad,
I did not notice the $7.99 no support version, just the $59.00 official version.
Its not that Im hell bent on using rh7 its just I want to be able to get on the internet and learn linux (unix). my jobs in networking and I see more and more jobs wanting linux experience.
with XP going for $200 or $100 upgrade, its just tooo much. not only that the whole .net thing is a little disturbing from the little i know of it
