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.

Jeremy - any thoughts on moving the "preview warning" out of the actual preview in the Wiki (when you click show preview button) - maybe put it above, outside the actual preview so its still there, but doesn't distract from evaluating the actual preview - noticed it made matters more difficult particularly when assessing formating.
Jeremy - any guidance for members on whether we should put our moniker names in, or leave them out, if you've created a Wiki sub-section etc - given that its a collaborative effort and there's tons of work to do, would it just be best if we left them out completely. (just to clarify for everyone)
Jeremy - any guidance on distribution descriptions in the WIki - currently using short descriptions from the distribution's homepage - reasoning is simply that, that's how they're currently describing their own distributions in their own words - is this ok for now?
Originally posted by jeremy I am happy to announce that a new LQ site is now entering public beta. The LQ Wiki aims to be a collaboratively-edited repository for all things Linux. Please bare with us as we clean things up and finalize the help section, but feel free to start making edits and additions now. Note that as this is a separate site, your forum login info will not work. All content entered into the wiki is available under the terms of a Creative Commons license, so the content will remain free to use for all. Please post all feedback, comments and suggestions in this thread. I'd like to thank david_ross who put a ton of work into getting the wiki up and running (and looking good) and trickykid for doing the logo.
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
The usernames are disjunct from LQ. This was a conscious decision to keep the sites someone separated (ie. I didn't want you to have to create a forum login to participate in the wiki). The help section should assist you with all the layout/linking/etc issues: http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/....org_Wiki:Help
