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 am a Linux newbie
More elaborate self description:
1. command-line illiterate - sinfully so.
2. break my system more often than not and believe in breaking it even more than I actually do currently --- well, not too badly, I mean I do love my system.
3. my educational background was in humanities and not in computer science, however I do want to do "stuff, (I can't say this any other way, no offense)" with computers. I would like to learn programming, perhaps Linux programming (maybe make it into a career, because I am interested in manipulating my system into doing stuff (sorry again) but pursue it in a professional manner (i guess, i mean a disciplined manner).
4. did I mention I was (am) a loudmouth and prone to ranting and/or rambling, kindly pardon me for my oversight (oh yeah, got bad memory too) as well as my loquacity.
P.S. I certainly hope there was no trouble figuring out what I am saying, thing is I am usually incoherent. And sorry, if this was a bit long.
