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.

I am trying to figure out which particular virtualization software was used on the linux workstations during my last contract. Really i should have just asked, but i didn't get a chance to. Anyway, I am unsure if the VMs were ran locally or from a server with a client console. However, i was told that new linux boxes were being deployed, and windows xp was the guest OS. Now i observed that the linux admin, from his workstation, was able to remote into the VMs; whether those VMs were on a server or on the to-be-deployed boxes i'm not sure. I suspect that it wasn't vnc, because vnc requires it to be installed onto a operational OS, however, the admin was in the process of installing xp. I'm unsure of the capabilities of Xen and KVM. The VM windows from the admins workstation was very simple, thin border and no menus. I'm installing VMware VM console today to see if the consoles are similar. See the admin could have created the VMs on the boxes and remoted into them, or they could be created on a server and then used multiple client consoles. Anyway, with this info, does anyone know which software he used? Thanks
