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 new member of this forum and a new user of Linux, a good user of other operating systems who like to enter into the World of Linux, once I am in the track I asure you that will provide all the information about Linux I collect from everywhere.
Yesturday I have installed Red Hat Linux 8, after formatting my system. The appearance of Red Hat is pretty Good, Office, Workspace facility, driver detection, desktop, freindly menus etc.
As a person who's using other OS's more, please help me to proceed further in Linux. My question looks so simple and stupid but sure will be a question of many new Red Hat users.
1. While installing LInux 3 CD's where there, 2nd CD was asked during the installation. But no idea about the use of 3rd CD. When I inserted the 3rd CD got the CD icon on the desktop and found lot of Packages (doubt equivalent word of program). Intalled the package (but no idea where its installed or couldn't find anything new in the menu)
2. If a new Package is installed where it will appear ?
3. Is .rpm is similar to .exe ?
4. How can i open a Floppy ?
5. How my Computer can be exploed.
6. Instead of drive C, D is it hda1,hda2 etc.
If anyone has got any small guideline links please email.
