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.

You folks made my week!
Really, it makes me feel better. I have not won anything that I wanted for years and years.
JICYAW if a rag always trips my trigger, as an old GF used to say(waaaay too much) no, I'm geeky(what engineer is not?) but not THAT geeky. It was a bad week primarily 'cause work week ended so badly ...ISP problems(liars & morons ... ).
This all seems a little chaotic. - much like a lot of Ubuntu (sorry to say). I'd like it to work. The concept is admirable, but the product is not wonderful. New version after new version is churned out with the same/different/unresolved/new bugs. Just because it is free does not mean it has to be less than perfect. Open Office is a case in point.
The bugs that were there 5 years ago have not been fixed. They probably never will be.
They make futuristic movies just about this kind of mindset. Think of Brazil for example.
It can take me anything up to 4 hours to find where to post. Then when I find where, I have either lost the thread or forgotten what I was going to ask.
My life is really to short for it all.
