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.

Can anyone suggest a *simple* fixed asset management package. Something very simple, and very basic; it can be as basic as having 4 or 5 fields, asset tag #, name, location, description.
I've been searching the usual places, freshmeat and sourceforge, but I haven't found anything that fits the bill. The closest I've found is a project on sf.net called asset-tracker, but I haven't been able to get a fully functional setup yet, and I'd prefer to find something that is in a stable state/stage of development, as opposed to beta or alpha.
Hmmm ... so what stops you from just using a spread-sheet for that information?
Well, I think I would like something that I can expand. I've started writing a simple PHP script, followed by a Python script where I can throw data in a small database that I've created, and I think thats what I'm going to have to start with. I have just a simple single-table database, with 6 fields, for info that I want to enter.
It'll take me a day or so to do (between not being a good "coder", and with other job related stuff that I'm working on).
