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 would like to explore the Virtual machines conversation.
I have recently installed Virtual PC for the express purpose of trying to familiarize myself with Linux. Trying two new products at once certainly gives me more places to look for the source of the inevitable problem, I know. All discussions about VPC would be of great interest to me. Obviously there are several lifetimes' worth of discussion on Linux here. I'm starting in on those too.
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
At this point I don't think a dedicated forum is needed for this. Let me touch base with a couple of people though, as I think if we could get reps from Xen, VMware, etc to participate it might be worth exploring.
Virtualization is one of the key technology trends for 2006-2007. It would be great if we could have a section dedicated to Virtualization so the knowledge base in products such as VMWare, XEN, etc. would grow. We could then learn about the challenges being encountered out there not only setting up a Virtual environment, but the day to day management issues as well as any support "gotchas".
