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.

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.

I'm going to be a relative newbie to linux in the near future. I've last played around on linux, albeit briefly about 8or more years ago, so, ineffect I'm a newbie again I've got an old PII, 196megs RAM and am going to be upgrading my HDD toan 80gig at least, thereby leavig the current 8gig HDD free for linux usage. I'd like some advice on which distro for normal home use and surfing the net would be most suitable. Thanks for any advice or suggestions you may have.
I am running a PII with 128 MB RAM and a 4 GB hard Drive. I can run KDE with no problem, some apps are a little slow but nothing to bad. I also test websites with it and they render normal. I am a Slackware man because Slackware keeps in mind older PC's for their distro. Good hacking!
