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.

LinuxQuestions Re-releases LQ Bookmarks
About a year ago, we released LQ Bookmarks, a site for Social Bookmarking, tagging and annotating all things Linux and Open Source. I am happy to announce that we have re-released an all new version of the site at http://www.linuxquestions.org/bookmarks/. The first thing you'll notice is that the new site uses your standard LQ username and password (in fact, if you're logged into LQ you're already logged into the new LQ Bookmarks site). The site also has an updated look, supports the del.icio.us API, has a nice tag cloud and much more. If you used the old site you can import your bookmarks to the new site with a single click. The site should be considered BETA, but seems fairly stable at the moment. As always your feedback is welcome. We'll start redirecting tags from the old site to the new in a few weeks.
However, could you possibly add a "Report broken link" option? I ask because some links are broken (for example, Ray's link to Linux Firewall ), so it would be extremely useful to weed out the old links - and possibly even automate a check for a 404 error on each site when a user is transferring their old bookmarks to the new site (and just adding a new site)?
