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 am having trouble getting my vim settings back after having made a new install of my GNU/Linux distro. I have a copy of my old .vimrc file and a complete recursive directory copy of my old .vim directory.
I have placed the copy of .vimrc and the directory .vim at /home/me/, but I am eg. unable to use my old color files now in /home/me/.vim/colors/
I am not completely sure, but I think it is still the same major version (7.2) as before i installed a new distro. What files related to vim would be candidates to include in them a hardcoding of the version number ?
I tried adding a new colour scheme newScheme.vim in /usr/share/vim/vim72/colors/ (added permissions to other for x and r)
and starting vim. The scheme shows up from within vim when toggling using :color, but it has no effect.
