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 just wanted to let y'all know that another mere mortal has joined the ranks of Debian users. I just installed Sarge (2.6 kernel) this evening, and all I have to say is WOW! I've tried my hand at Mandrake and RedHat before, with my latest distro being the buggy and bloated Fedora Core 2.
Here is what I have learned in the past three hours:
apt-get is the most amazing tool ever.
icewm is so much nicer (faster) than kde.
(ok i could've used icewm on another distro, but redhat tries to be so newbie friendly that it scares you away)
i don't have 9 million programs sitting around that i'll never use!
everything seems so clean and simple.
apt-get is incredible.
Anyway, the two stickies at the top of this forum were very helpful and the install went without a hitch. Thanks.
Next stop: Install ATI Radeon drivers *shudder*
I'm sure I'll be posting again soon asking for help on that one. I have yet
to get it to work under any linux distro.
