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.

petaFLOPS HPC Linux Clustering
Here's a new LQ member (and Linux fan) from Bulgaria. Not a guru of course but constantly learning...
As a physicist I am interested in High Performance Computing (parallel calculations using Linux clusters) because my areas of interest in Physics require much computational power - Numerical Relativity as example... CactusCode should do well enough. Adaptive mesh refinement, things like that...
Have you heard that the present combined "Folding-at-home" power of the involved PlayStation3 volunteers have reached 1 petaFLOPS?!! Yes, the new Sony/IBM/Toshiba 1+8-core processor (Cell BE) is really a huge step forward. I can hardly wait for the Cell BE architecture to enter the consumer PC market! And the major Linux distros to be compiled for Cell BE of course
Until then... well, I plan to try a Celeron 420 based PC (overclocked of course ) with 1 or 2 Gigs of RAM (due to budget restrictions ).
