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.

does anyone know of a pop-up stopper for linux? i dont have a huge problem since without one i still get fewer than i did in windows with the settings to agressive control...but if there is one id like to know
One thing I like to do, in addition to other popup countremeasures, is to place hosts that are guilty of providing annoying ads and popups in my hosts file with a pointer to 127.0.01. Instead of going after the ads, it displays an error page in its place. Saves a little bandwidth, especially since people are now pushing flash ads, etc.
To go with what tpro mentioned, here is a hosts file already containing all the common ad-servers, along with instructions for using it. This is a great way to block (nearly all) ads without running a proxy or other software.
