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'm aware of ALE, and will be attending a LUG meeting at Georgia Tech soon, but I was wondering how many users we have from the Atlanta area here. I think it would be cool, not as a LUG per se, but to just have an informal meet and greet some time to just put a bit of a more personal spin on Linux and LinuxQuestions. Thoughts?
I live in the Atlanta area, Buckhead to be exact. I think it would be a good idea
to get together with other LQ users in the area to, as you said, put a more
personal spin on things. I'm not sure exactly where a good place to gather would
The reason I say that is that I'm 34 and would prefer a bar type atmosphere but
I realize that a lot of people here might not be of drinking age(or don't drink).
I have to be honest though, I don't find hanging out with a bunch of kids to be
time well spent(Although some are very mature and insightful, it's not the norm
in my experience).
That's just my thoughts. I reserve the right to be wrong.
The way I see it, if your old enough to: fight for your country(and possibly die),
pay taxes, drive, vote, etc.... then your not what I would call a kid. Personal
responsibility goes a long way in making someone mature.
I still think it would be a good idea and I would just like to be able to have a cold
one while there.
