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.

What about Adobe Acrobat or similar PDF app (not just a Reader) for Linux ARM/Xscale devices? It would be Great to be able to use PDF electronic forms on a handheld device like the Sharp Zaurus SL 760. Realistically, there are many businesses and professions (my own included) that collect and rely upon field data on a daily basis (while away from the office) and, as such, could greatly benefit from such an application. I've searched the Web all over but, unfortunately, nothing addresses this matter. It appears clear that certain outside political and economic forces have influenced the market to the degree that all the focus has been concentrated on mobile phones. I only wish that somebody would wake up and view the total picture as there exist other devices (like that mentioned above) that can do so much more if we had this cross-platform capability.
