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.

With this in mind, I figure it's time I chipped in as a Contributing member. I've been waiting for an excuse to throw more money at linux causes.
I figure that LQ.org is such a valuable resource to newbies and experienced users alike, it deserves a spot in any linux showcase available. With the inroads that linux is making, especially in Europe, LQ.org is a great thing to hype to fledgling desktop and corporate users taking their first steps or solving complex problems.
Here's to a good trip to the UK! My next post will be as a Contributing Member.

I hope you guys make it to London.
India is kind of far, but whatever.
As far as london goes...
There is not much trouble with safety there.
The subway rocks. That will take you pretty much anywhere.
Wherever the subway does not go, the cab can take you.
The cabs are great in London - real pot luck, you may get a friendly driver, a political and angry driver, a quiet driver or (and this ones my favourite) the guy who waits until you tell him where you want to go and then says "actually, I'm going home" and turns off the meter.
The night buses, however, rock. Roll out of the pub or club at a stupid hour of the night and get taken where you need to go for £1. Ah, the number of times I have woken up in the middle of Essex........
The underground stops at about midnight, so buses and cabs are always useful.
