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've been lurking on this forum for a while, but thought it about time to introduce myself. I've been using Linux on and off for a number of years - ever since I bought a Slackware distribution at CeBIT in the 90's sometime. I'm currently using YellowDog on a G3 iMac - my house backup server, lots of disk, and Mandriva on an AMD machine for my day-to-day hacking, but I have been a Fedora user in the past as well. Professionally I have been in support roles on AIX since AIX 3.2.5, and Solaris more recently also - oh, and I'm also a keen Mac OSX user.
I've been in IT since punch cards, paper tape and real core storage. (the software for my final year project at University was on an CA Alpha LSI-02, though I did have access to a DEC PDP12, a Honewell DDP516 and a Burroughs B1700!) I do most of my coding in good ol' C, but I do play in PHP and other languages as well. These days I'm an IT Architect/Consultant, but still keep trashing and building machines for grins.
