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.

as you see from tread i am very new @linux, using RH 8.0 for few days, i like it but i am still lost .
1st i have configured printing services ( for printer located on w2k server) i am able to ping printer, and i added same printer with printtool but if i try to print something, out of printer is coming who knows what: all kinds of numbers and letters that doesn't make any sence . any idea ?
2nd i both Mark Minasis Book : Linux for Windows Network Administrators and its great and gave me first steps and some opening. what would you recomend for me, i would like to learn it from inside to outside and what verision of linux you would recommend ???
Sorry, I have no knowledge of Windows 2000 servers. Any Linux distro is good to learn and there are a lot of Red Hat users, so you picked a good one, although I still prefer Redhat 7.3 for it's stability.
As to the first problem, I am not sure what 's the problem exactly.
But I once encountered a problem that graphics were printed as texts.
I just checked the "raw queue" option in the settings of printer, and then I fixed it.
The su - command (after you give the correct password) gives full root power, the same as logging into the root account. Anything typed into that x terminal should be done as long as there is enough system left to do the commands, ie both /bin and /sbin is in your PATH and you save typing 5 charactors.
Note the change in directory (was /home/fancy) and prompt. That X terminal has "god" powers over your system and you can bless or destroy at your whim using that x terminal, so read everything you type into it at least 3 times before pressing enter.
