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.

Happy Birthday LQ!
This board has helped me over the years solve many problems, and had helped me learn a lot.
For a suggestion, if a thread is opened, answered, but not marked solved, what about sending the originator a friendly e-mail, after seven days or so, and asking for an update? I would also suggest to do this only once per thread, I don't want to bug a poster, and turn them off posting.
Ask the originator to mark the thread as Solved, Found a work around, Partially solved? and ask for if the originator is still looking for a solution?
I have read many threads that simply 'dead end' no solution posted, it appears the thread is ongoing? When you look at the date, the thread is old.
I love working in Linux... it doesn't get in the way of what I want to do on the computer or the web. The time I invest in learning more about Linux is not wasted on some proprietary system that might be trashed in the next iteration of the OS.
