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.

Found a swap file by the name "/var/tmp/config.swp"
owned by: root dated: Sun Nov 2 12:02:29 2003
file name: ~root/.wine/config
user name: root host name: localhost.localdomain
process ID: 15299
While opening file "/root/.wine/config"
(1) Another program may be editing the same file.
If this is the case, be careful not to end up with two
different instances of the same file when making changes.
Quit, or continue with caution.
(2) An edit session for this file crashed.
If this is the case, use ":recover" or "vim -r /root/.wine/config"
to recover the changes (see ":help recovery").
If you did this already, delete the swap file "/var/tmp/config.swp"
to avoid this message.
