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.

Created credit card size LFS CD. Boots suspect's PC, plug in a USB hard drive and use dd to create a forensically admissable image of the drive onto the USB drive. The whole process takes less than an hour. If the suspect's drive is small enough I can use one of those micro USB hard drives and the whole forensic data capture kit will fit into your shirt pocket.
Got a call late sunday night cause a friends computer was not working. System would boot but go Blue Screen when you tried to log in. She'd been trying to repair it all day using windows repair with no sucess. She needed a file for a paper due on monday that she needed to finish.
Burnt a copy of Knoppix poped it in and it's been running fine ever since. Not only can she access her papers but she can im, listen to music, whatever she wants.
Got my wifi working and connected my laptop with my wifi network. Also configured samba and shared files between WINDOWS and LINUX. Den became totally insane and got my netwrok completely on FC 4 LINUX with things like connection sharing and last and the least got each and every peice of my hardware gettin running on LINUX.
The coolest thing i have done is being able to record audio and encode it into AMR format and decode it again from AMR into WAV and play it. This was big break through for the project i was working on. And more i always enjoyed proganmming using c in linux.
