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.

Hello Frankbell thank you for your helpful suggestions.
Pete my husband sorted his pad out by tweaking the settings and managed to do a test print on our networked printer. So he is well ahead of me already. My main problem is the old laptop I am trying has so little room on it that everything is so slow I am not sure if I have pressed a key or not. To test it better I am going to try it on my XP desktop which is just as old but added to its memory so it has space to manoeuvre in. I will no doubt have more questions soon. But as I said the system seems excellent. I want to try to print and scan so I will try those next. But not today it is a bank holiday and the sun is shining - this is a very unusual occurrence so I shall go and enjoy the garden today.
