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.

Just in case some people don't know it yet, or some newbie has trouble handling rpm, because dependencies keep biting him/her in the a***:
apt-get rpm is GREAT!
It virtually makes a normal SuSe/Redhat (and whatever else) into a Debian system.
No more headaches with dependencies, apt-get rpm get's them resolved and downloads the required packages.
I had a hard time installing some stuff that was not made for my distro and some I completely failed, unable to indentify which version of which package this new package required. Now with apt-get, I love it!!!
I did not find such a small small but incredible usefull tool for must be about a year.
In case one of the programmers of it is reading this:
Thank you very much!!! You win my award!
Okay, installed the update--still command not found!
AHH I'm going to lose my mind!
All I want to do is get XINE or MPlayer to work, and it needs dependencies that I cannot find!
I'm about to lose all hope
