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.

It's cool having this members area. The fee is ok, and the proposed extra features are pretty kewl.
Hey jeremy, if you need some hardware donations; I don't know what kind of computer you are upgrading the site to but, I've got some extra hardware that you can have if you need it. Some intel processors, big and fast hardrives, and some video cards. Just in case you know...
Anyway, lets see what more people think about this whole thing,
I agree with all, my only hassle would be I am in New Zzealand....and the dollar here is sad...sad..sad compared to the US. So it would depend on the price. However, saying that I am there to help in anyway
I would love to help but i run a site myself http://www.postdeals.net and first few months were great making good money now it seems either those banner people don't correctly recognize the business i give or they jus dont want to pay. I get more hits and clicks now then few months ago but my payments went from $60-100 a month to like $15-20max a month which is hardly enough money to keep the site going. I wish i can help but with college loans and bills to pay to keep the site up i can't really donate anything now.
I AM WILLING TO HELP YOUR SITE BY PROMOTING IT, I MOVED TO LINUX FEW MONTHS AGO AND THIS SITE HAS HELPED ME A LOT (also people on irc have been helpful too).
I never joined the Mandrake Club, because I didn't think (after browsing the forums) that I would get anything like the help I get here.
I personally don't feel the need for a "Contributing Member" recognition being posted publicly. Just send me a nice "warm and fuzzy" thank you card.
I think the number of posts shown beneath a user's name is enough of an indicator about who is truly a contributing member.
Monetarily contributing people might appreciate receiving tips on job leads (I know I would), since you pointed out that these are tough economic times. The personal messaging that you mentioned might help here.
But, that's just one idea. Thanks for all your hard work to date, Jeremy!
I'm new to the forum, but intend to spend a lot of time learing Linux inside out. I won't become a contributing member right away, but wouldn't mind the $35 if this forum proves as useful as I believe it will. I'd say go for it.
I think this forum rocks. I wouldn't mind paying the $35 for a year to keep this great service running. However there were two things I would like to suggest.
One, let the members decide how much each want to pay, let $35 be the preferred amount. That way you can get more membership. I dont think it would be neccessary to create different features for different classes of memberships.
Secondly, I really liked one nice feature in the Mandrake User Club. They had a AIM icon under a person's profile. I think it would be a great addition here too. Any thoughts
