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.

Weekly LinuxQuestions.org contest
Starting this week we will be having a weekly LinuxQuestions.org contest, sponsored by Affero. As you probably noticed there is an Affero button under every post. You can use this button to donate to many great causes on behalf of the member who made the post.
The contest will have two weekly winners:
- individuals that are the top volunteer for the week (one who's help inspires a the most donations).
- individuals that are the top patron for the week (one who says thanks by giving the most).
Prizes currently available are Mandrake 9.0/8.2 or an RMS autographed copy of "Free Software, Free Society: Selected Essays of Richard M. Stallman" but I am waiting to hear on Red Hat 8.0, Star Office 6.0, and other items I hope to add to the inventory.
To participate in the contest you need to follow the following two simple steps:
- join Affero here
- add your Affero username to your LinuxQuestions.org profile.
- Winners are ineligible to participate in the contest for 60-days after they have won.
- Winners send their prize selection and shipping address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm a little confused. If I give 100 GBP thru affero to say acid kewpie's nominated charity to reward his firm yet understanding help to a newb asking about accessing his windows partition, the RMS book's mine ?
