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.

I've been using Linux for the last past 4yrs. What is Linux Ps? I already do all my DVD writing under Linux. I'll never but never put my DVD burner in a windows machine again ever since a got a virus and it got the burner. Had to re-flash it to get it working again. Since then I've burnt over a 100 DVD's in Linux. I've even wrote my own DVD authoring program. Dosn't do menus yet but I'am working on it.

...well I would like to know where the decent ones are all hiding. Thanks to greed, they're illegal to have now since the evil empire wants money for any MP3 encoder/decoder. fortunately, I think we now will see a major shift toward Ogg Vorbis.
I would like information from Sonique on how to write firmware for my MP3-CD player. I would like to add Ogg-Vorbis support to it (and maybe remove Windows Media support )
Isn't MP3 actualy trademarked by the Moving Pictures Expert Group? ...since it is, after all, MPEG 1 Layer 3. Strangely, though their name's on it, they don't get the royalties.

There two that I would like to see:
From Charles Johnson at "Little Green Footballs & Codehead Software" his old Atari program "Codekeys". Allowed programing the keyboard for macros and tie the trigger key to specific programs. some of the other Codehead prgms would be nice as well.
Another is "AdSubtract" from Intermute. The windoz version goes for $30.
While I too have a list of Windows based software I'd like to use -PhotoShop, Nero, and about a dozen PC games... the problem becomes cost. Software manufacturers will only port to Linux if they can make what they do providing software for Windows and Macs. The day that happens, Linux becomes something entirely different.
1) MS Office--but I already use OpenOffice.org so that one's okay
2) InstallShield--or something that does good installs EVERY time
--by this, I mean (for the love of God!) I shouldn't have to worry about which distribution or version I'm on or whether I'm using SuSE 8.1 or 9.0 or Redhat or debian
This is the most critical to Linux's success. Because most people don't have the skills to play around with dependency problems
3) Games, dammit! 90% of nerdy guys out there (like me) play games and until you have good games, you aren't gonna have Linux addicts...any coincidence MS has focused a lot on gaming the last few years? (Think x-box and online) Coincidence? I think not.
