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.

Will someone please tell me of some good books that actually will help me in understanding how the hell mandrake works. It would be lovely to be able to browse my floppy drive or cd drive even!!!!! Most of my hair has fallen out now and having installed mandrake 9.1 yesterday and played with it most of today I still have no internet, weird file problems and a whole host of other freaky linux things goin on . . . . Come back Bill all is forgiven
The way Windoze is copying everyone elses OS it won't be long before it too is a variant of *nix!
Keep persisting, tackle one job at a time. check your logs for errors and for any errors, search Google, there's almost always someone else out there who has had the same problem, sometimes it just takes a bit to find the right answer and the folks here at LQ are extremely helpful. Just post all the details, OS version, details of problem, what you've tried etc. :-)
At least with Linux, if something goes wrong you only have to tackle the problem itself and not the whole OS, guessing what conflict is where.
