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.

Ten candles to blow out! Nice going!
Tnx (again) 4 this forum and the speedy and correct answers. These helped the transition from *** to Linux, and now (quite a few posts later) I dont even use *** any more!!!
Nine years...! Thats quite mature... I should note here that LQ is also least bothering (in terms of ads) of the forums I visit. Plus the quality... I may not be good enough to help others yet, my post count may be less but I've been greatly benefitted by just reading many posts here.
Pretty wild that you could have LQ up and going for so long. I'd be really curious about why, what, how...? I looked through the FAQ and a couple other places, but do you have any of that kind of info posted anywhere? If you get a chance, it would be interesting to hear your story.
IIRC, Jeremy kicked off LQ purely as a way to give back to the community. As well, LQ has always been geared towards the absolute newbie, so we're not overly strict about post or title quality, when LQ first started Linux was truly the realm of the nerds and geeks and many forums scared away members simply because they had very many very strict rules. Jeremy has also resisted selling out to big companies and has kept this as a community driven site. It is telling that of all the forums that were about then, many have disappeared - Jeremy was way ahead of the curve in terms of attitude towards members!
What a leap forward from the days of snarky, elitist Usenet forums one had to rely on a decade ago. I mention this only because LQ has clearly dealt with this, making participating here fun. I have never seen a better operated / moderated forums system anywhere. Thanks for all the hard work and dedication. I know you asked for suggestions, but I really can't think of any.
