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.

Reason: remove "urgent"
Don't mark your threads as urgent. It might be for you, but it definitely isn't for us. We're not a helpdesk that need to solve issues before a certain time. We are all volunteers here and doing this for fun.
I know for a fact that some people won't even open a thread if they see urgent in the thread title.
Thank you John and Random Troll. Hi Mr.druuna, Thanks for your kind advice. Could you please suggest me a word for replacing URGENT. If something is URGENT menace, i don't know how to say. I know THIS IS NOT A HELP DESK. BCOZ I am also contributing to this community. You are just a senior member, thats it. Hey Mr.druuna I don't want your help further.
You'll see that I made the appropriate change in the thread title....
I would like to create a package which will insert TUN/TAP driver for VPN access. This is meant for a mobile device and hence root permission cannot be granted to the person installing the package. Kindly suggest a solution for this.
Sorry for being furious with my previous posts... Druuna, I will be a good boy from now on...
