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 help me with providing some links to open source / free virtual machine software, that can be configured from command-line only. I have tried XEN from novell, but it requires a GUI, which is kind of odd. I need it to be able to run on a dedicated server, so I am reluctant to installing the xserver there.
vmware seems to have a web-interface for the server, so it looks promising, I will try it.
You can also install the vmware-server on one machine, and then install the vmware-server-client on your workstation that has a gui and use it to access and manage the virtual machines remotely. and yes theres always the web client as well.
It's like the old days of Anti-Virus and web browsers... you give away the basic version people get used to it, then when it comes time to buy a more advanced version fo the corporation people are more likely to recommend something they have used.. at least that's my take on it.
