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.

Hey, I Love Linux and occasionally write some tutorials and such on my website when I feel the current amount of online information on the subject is somewhat lacking. My most popular tutorial is about how to set up MythTV to auto-transcode your tv shows to H.264 and update the MythTV database so your transcoded shows appear in the same list as all your other recorded shows.
I'm introducing myself now because I have a new tutorial ready, and I want to post a link to it in reply to an unresolved thread regarding NVidia Optimus on the GT650M. I have found a way to have a hybrid setup with two different OpenGL implementations coexisting on one system together peacefully, and being able to run an OpenGL-enabled desktop while also selectively running certain programs with the proprietary NVidia driver.
The steps are somewhat involved, and there is a relatively necessary introduction to them, so I feel a link to my website would be more appropriate than a full (really long) forum post. I hope that's okay and allowed here.
Anyway, I'll reply to posts on here from time to time when I feel I have some knowledge that people are looking for. But Only If You Let Me Link To My New Tutorial!!! Lol, j/k (please let me...)
Roken has already told you about the LQ tutorials section which in my opinion is the best option you have. If on the other hand you don't want to go that way, then I'd advice you to contact the moderation team (Report button on your post) or the site owner Jeremy (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly.
Looking forward to your participation in the forums. Have fun with Linux.
