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.

when I type the "uptime" command it says I have 4 users, even though I'm only logged in as myself with root occasionally. (my girlfriend has an account too but hasn't used it yet, & created a samba login which doesn't appear at sign in)??
try the command users
*smiles* I managed to hack myself last night or i was overly schizo. Working on my ftpd, ircd, samba and apache i found out that i was logged in just 6 times.

ok, well, like i said try 'who'
that will show who's on and from where
the output of who should look something like this
root tty1 Oct 14 11:45
root tty2 Oct 14 11:45
root ttyS0 Oct 14 00:52
root pts/0 Oct 14 00:51 (184.108.40.206)
root pts/1 Oct 14 00:52
the first columnt is easy enought to understand, that's the username
the second column is from where
tty1 <-> tty6 are your VCs
ttyS0 is a serial line terminal (in my case a WYSE monitor)
the pts terminals are xterms
the ip in parens (220.127.116.11) indicates a login via tcp/ip
those are the ones you should wory about if you don't reccognize the ips or don't login via tcp/ip or have anyone who does, in the example, it's just another machine on my LAN so it's ok
