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.

I must get at least two different alerts daily from Mandrake
about packages needing upgrading in the system. Rather than trying to keep up witn them I am wondering if sites like Linuxiso and the like get upto date iso's reflecting the almost constant "fixes" that the programmers missed in the first place.
iso's? why would you want an iso??? you have a distro with say... 1000 packages on it. and every single time a single package gets changed you want to reinstall the entire thing? mandrake cooker is an upto date version of mandrake, jsut get the indivual rpms from their ftp site or fr2.rpmfind.net and install the relevant packages.
sounds like a good plan Chris, but dont remember what I had for breakfast today let alone which packages I was warned about last week, I run 91 and would tonder if they have a db that does that automatically
Welll it may be that I am not ready for Linux yet Proud, however I also never have gotten the MMC to work with my cable.
To date, it seems the only real good I have gotten from the Mandrake Club is knowing that it helps keep the doors open to support them.
