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.

play with netbsd and openbsd. they're all so different, you're unlikely to run into
the same problems. That's what made gentoo so fun for me, since i had played
with the bsd's for years. gentoo took about the best feature from freebsd, the
ports, and made it work in linux. openbsd and netbsd added the ports before
gentoo existed though, to the best of my knowledge.
i love having all this stuff to play with.
Good idea whansard. I think I will give OpenBSD a shot . FreeBSD looked awesome though. It requires practically nothing of RAM ro run. That'be great to use in a box that I found on the trash last week as a server . Cannot believe peoples trow working PC's away.. well good for me
