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.

In order to access the internet using my laptop, i have to use a USB network adaptor, which we have, but the software only supports windows , would be nice if possible on linux.......
Linksys (http://www.linksys.com) market a USB Ethernet adapter which does work with Linux. I tested it with IPCop on an older laptop and a couple of newer desktop installations. The model number USB200M is listed as a current product on the Linksys webssite.
I've been searching all over the place for a program or script that offers all or most of the convenience that AutoUnpack provides. IMHO, absolutely indispensable for automated extraction of binaries downloaded from usenet. Hellanzb is the only program I know of that comes even close (e.g. if invoked like this "hellanzb -L -p <dir>"), but this just does not work as good (it only verifies and unpacks the first file, and skips everything else). Or does someone here know of an alternative?
nero and limewire have spyware. that's why i switched to linux. why is my meager business so very extremely interesting anyway?
I've no experience with Limewire (I'm not preaching - I've just not used it), but I have had years of experience with Nero.
Not once has any legitimate copy of Nero (OEM, retail, downloaded & purchased) ever been found to contain malware of any kind.*
I just installed Spybot (I'm beginning to recall why I despised and left Windows and went to Mac and Linux on my personal machines), ran a scan, installed the trial version of Nero 7, and ran another scan.
No changes to the system were reported and no reports of spyware or other malware were reported.
The enormous installed size of Nero (1231 meg) is, however, an entirely different issue.
