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 don't own a copy of Mac OS X Panther, so if I want to try out PearPC, I'll have to go on Ebay and buy a copy. Is it really worth it? Yes, I know it will be slug slow. Also, how easy is it to configure? I'm still a newbie with Linux.
I've heard it's not actually that slow but I'm not sure. I compile PearPC the other day and my neighbour recently bought a shiny new G5 PowerMac so I'm gonna borrow his CDs when I see him next and give it a go
it is worth trying if you can borrow CDs from your friends. but frankly, there's absolutely no need to buy one for the purpose of using PearPC at present. pearpc >=0.3 is much better than 0.1 in terms of speed, but still impossible as your main system. the configuration especially for networking and sound is not yet a dummy-task, and quite vary from windows and linux. what actually you can expect from it is only the initial experience how Mac OS X looks like, but not how it runs like
by the way, i feel the easiest and fastest way to meet your curiosity of pearpc and mac osx is to directly find one pre-installed disk image from any one who has already successfully installed one no need to spend hours and even days installing that.
