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 share my experiences over the past few months that I have used Linux. First of all, let me preface this message by stating that I am a soldier deployed in Afghanistan. Back in June 2004, when I came home for some RR, I grabbed a copy of SuSE from my local electronics store and Dual Booted (XP) my Averatec 5110HX notebook. Well SuSE certainly did a good job of setting things up for me, however in the 5 months that I used it, I never really learned anything. So I had my wife order me a few distro's back in November. Long story short, I have been a Slacker ever since. Now as you can imagine, my internet access was a come and go thing, so I RTFM (HOW-TO, Mini-HOWto's etc.) and with the help of the LQ community I have completely transitioned over to a Linux only user. Now it's time that I start to give back to the community that has been generous in helping me. I plan to write an HCL entry when I get home, but can anyone else recommend sites or places where I can contribute back to the Linux community (obviously LQ)?
