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.

Tried to get a centos server going a few years ago with a XP box to attempt to learn how to run it. Well I lost that battle. Too much real life, interfeared. So this time I took parts from dead machines and put together a stand alone centos 5.8 system. I stuck with the centos5 series as I had used the 5.2 build last time and I never trust new releases of any software since DOS 4.2.
So far I have installed it 5 times. the first time I used the Motherboard video that Linux does not have drivers for and the screen was 1024x1024 and on a 14 inch screen that is very small print.
2-3 was getting a video card that would work. Found a Win95 PCI that did the trick. THen It was getting internet access for the last 2 installs. Now it is working. (kinda) Now to get my 3 domains ( 78ez.com - couch-potato-sales.com - 78hosting.com ) working in Apache and I will be a happy camper.
I attempt to make Computer Video games. Actually I am published and have 5 games on the market. Three are so so games and 2 are pretty good and one won a gamemaker award. I came in 4th place. I set up this system to try and find a way to market the games.
I revisited Linuxquestions to find the answers I need to get this all running proper like. As my stint with apache on a XP was hacked and I had to trash the system. Now I need to connect the Centos box with my 3 windows box's. one win7 the other 2 XP.
