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.

Distribution: Fedora Core, SuSE and Ubuntu, 5.10 of course :-)
Coolest thing is groovin to my Internet radio which WON'T loose its connection for a week guaranteed and then looking at my beautiful shiny shell with its shiny little cursor and thinking about my amazing uptime that, if computer wasn't moved, would be years indeed!!
The coolest thing I did recently was realizing that I didn't have enough storage/speed/memory on my old 200MHz PentiumMMX 48mb ram, 2gig hard drive Acer laptop to run all the nifty stuff I wanted to like Gaim, Gimp, Firefox, etc, and then figuring out that I could run the installed versions via the network by sshing to my more powerful desktop and setting the display pointed to my laptop's xserver. Hence, I get programs running on a computer with a 1.8GHz Duron to display on my old ass laptop.
Only probem is... the laptop is on my wireless network, so if I go out of range, all the things running via the network stop working :P

Which internet radio? The only station I can even tune into (and I have mplayer-plug in, etc) is 9412.com and that's because it has a file on it's website to download...
Shoutcast won't let me do anything, where do you go?
