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 former hi-speed cable user and a (somewhat) new Linux junkie. After I disposed of my connex...I resorted to dial-up (no DSL as of yet in my area). That was about a year ago. I run an HP box, bout 4yrs old, dual boot (RHN 8-WinXP-Pro). When I first got dial-up, I labored and agonized over
getting my box online.... with an LTModem. I huffed and I puffed...and got nowhere.
Between downloading, flavor/kernel mismatching, improper syntax, dual-booting and downloading @56k, I gave up. Hey, I also have a family and run my own business...don't condemn me...lol.
This last week I've had a bit of time on my hands and decide to have another go at it. I searched and researched any new info. on getting an LTModem to work. Must have done something right..I am posting this from my Linux boot!
Seriously, I know exactly what I did right. I read AND followed the docs for the software/driver. And I ran the newest version of scanModem first, which pointed me in the right direction as far as driver and start point. I checked my syntax closely, I followed the docs like gospel...and it worked. No better feeling than beating what has beaten you.
