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.

well, I did it. After hours of wrestling with mandrake (10.0 community) I finally got it to reinstall. YAY!!! My next challenge- make an NTFS partiton. Install Windows 2000. Then vector linux, then knoppix. YAY!!!
I have grub (lilo baulked) on a floppy- so I can forget the whole problem of windows writing over the boot loader!
anyway- late sleep- (if I can!). Network is working- using iceWM for the first time- love it!!! I thought I was a gnome person, forget that, I love iceWM!
firefox installed without a hitch- on my way!!
3 flavours of linux (rpm, debian and slackware) on my box! plus a windows for games!!! I'm so pumped- I'm raving so I'd better sign off.
Life is good, the birds are singing, God loves me and I'VE GOT LINUX BACK!!!
yay! now installed slackware! I can't believe it- I thought those "other" linuxes *mandrake* *cough* *cough* were cool- but man! slackware is awesome. I love it, it doesn't let me do anything at all, which means I need to actually LEARN!!! yes!
anyway, so now I have 2 os's on this computer, have to boot slack using the boot disk but working on it, working on it...
