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 just submitted an article about HomePNA 2.0 networking. However, after I hit the 'submit' button, I suspected I left a typo in the article. Is there any way I can edit the draft after it has been submitted?
Heh, thanks for pointing that out... but what I really meant was whether I could edit a submission to linuxanswers.org after I've sent it but before it is published; in other words, editing while it is in the submission queue. I guess I'll just wait until (if) it is published, assuming that I, as the original poster, has editing privileges.
Is there any notification that your HOWTO submission is pending? I might have overlooked it, but I didnt see anything saying something like "Your HOWTO has been submitted and will be reviewed by the staff at linuxquestions.org ...."
If there isn't, it might reduce confusion, and double submissions. The only thing that howto left out about writing a howto is the whole process behind it ... ie the fact that there actually is a submission process (seems obvious) and how long it will take, etc)
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
The article is submitted as soon as you submit, but does not appear until it passes editorial review. I'd say the average is about 24-72 hours, but occasionally we get a flurry of submissions and it takes a little while to cleat the backlog. If you have any other questions, let me know.
Still did not really answer my question :-/
Is there any affirmation that your submitting process was successful, not that your article has been approved, but that the "answer" was received. I'm asking because maybe people, when submitting, stay on the page for quite awhile before they submit, and then their credentials for the forums have timed out so they click submit, but maybe nothing really happens. Im just thinking that maybe the system could send a private message to the person. Also, if a person's LQ answer submission is denied, is that user notified?
Thanks for your patience
