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 currently use Filemaker Pro on Mac and Windows. I'm looking for a similar desktop frontend database in Linux. This is for use in a community radio station that is considering going over to Linux. It needs to be very user friendly.
If your database is not to big, you may work with gaby, otherwise consider using mysql or postgresql. It's not to hard and there are some frontends. Or maybe Rekall is something for you, but it's a commercial product.
Thanks, we will be using mysql on our server, however, I am more concerned about the frontend. I need something that is user friendly as many of our volunteers are not that computer literate. I am more so than average, but, still not a code writer. I am very much a newbie with Linux. My platform of choice has been Mac OS for maybe ten years. I still love it but do not see our organisation having the cash to purchase new macs running OS X. I see Linux as a platform that fulfills both my practical and ethical concerns. I have created a few solutions on Filemaker Pro and am learning more with that program, but, as it is mac and windows only, I am looking for something similar on Linux.
I'd rather like to have a gui which is also possible to create forms and reports with, not only administer the db. It'd be perfect if I also could export these reports to html or even be able to export the db to xml/css/dtd/html/... that is to browse the data using any popular web-browser without having to install the database or a runtime-version (i.e. access-runtime in windows-world).
