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 have several times in the past placed the mouse cursor over the name of an LQ user, the one that is on the left of my posts when I read them, and I got a little box saying 'John is online' or 'John is offline'. But now I can't reproduce this. Is still this feature existent? Thanks in advance.
1. Type about:config in your address bar, accept the warning.
2. Put useragent in the top text box named "Filter", hit enter.
3. Double click it.
4. Enter the exact name of your distribution e.g. OpenSuse/Firefox/3.6.8 (on my it was /Firefox/3.6.8) yours may be different.
Did you see the green symbol on the bottom left corner of my post near the penguin, it means I am using OpenSuse.
I now understand. But I have the radio button in 'yes' (show the o.s.) and to the left of the penguin there is the head of another penguin. If I place the mouse cursor on it it says 'linux'. But I use Slackware. Besides, I've just seen the slackware logo in wikipedia and they do not match.
EDIT: I selected the other radio button and the penguin's head disappeared!
