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.

My name is Gabriel, i am from Chile and a total newbye about linux and computers in general. However, against all odds i managed to install succesfully ubuntu 6.06 on my loved old IBM T22 (god how i love that case).
I know this is going to be slow (and painful at times). I know i will have to read more than i want to, but i refuse to send those other 3 old pcs (A P4 with 512 Ram and 2 other similar AMDs) to the trash. I impose myself with the noble task of installing linux on them, and to make them useful again, for educational purposes. I join this community with that goal, and i declare that I will never be a computer illiterate again.
Id love any early advice or suggestions for my intentions, as i struggle even to identify the hardware i actually have :P. That being said i want to thank all the people here for the information that i have already found in this forum, it is clear to me this is a very good site, full of nice people.
