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'm amazed by the number of questions that some of the resident mods in LQ have answered. I'd really like to know what LQ life is for them. How many hours they spend, what sort of things they have to deal with, how close their Linux Library is to them (0r is it all from memory), are any on dial-up, how they deal with certain questions, if there's any competition between them, etc. So how about an interview with one? Anonymous even, so we might appreciate better the work they do.
Certainly I'd like it to be slightly humorous as well - as you can tell from my title, a variation on Interview With The Vampire - and for it to follow the other interviews in LQ, usually given to well known luminaries of the Linux world.
In many ways, working at the coalface of linux education, LQ mods with 5k plus posts have a right to be called luminaries. I'm not trying to make any friends here, it's just that 5k plus posts are just an amazing amount to write.
I'll read the journals, and seeif my enthusiasm for the idea is sustained enough to come up with a list of questions.
