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.

The avatar thing has come up a few times (a quick search in the suggestions forum should turn up the threads). They are not going to happen. Sorry. As for number one, LQ will continue to change and evolve as it always has - for the better!
Originally posted by Brain Drop 1)there is some sort of assurance from you that you wont change the board in some bad way in the near future( this isnt that important)
2) avatars- i like them so do some others maybe you could hold a poll about avatars? if they got voted down then i would agree and still contribute.
1. jeremy has been very careful from the very beginning to retain full control over LQ so that it will remain the way he wants it to remain. he's had offers from some companies to help out with the bandwith costs that he's turned down because they want too much control over the forums. jeremy recently obtained a new server to run the site that was donated very generously by ASL - he could have gotten one sooner, but waited until it was donated with no strings attached. once you've gotten to know jeremy a bit better, you'll see why all the mods and members here trust him pretty much implicitly - he's been the steady hand controlling this site from the beginning, and he always impresses me with how calm and level-headed he's been throughout all the changes the site has gone through.
2. avatars ... not going to happen, sorry. we've discussed this before, and the mods at least were unanimous against. plus, and most importantly, jeremy doesn't like them. one thing to remember here is that, while jeremy is very fair, and will take a poll on minor issues, LQ isn't a democracy.
