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.

Installed upgrade from 10.1 CE to 10.1 Official via urpmi, all went smoothly. On reboot i lost my user home directory, which I was expecting as I have read a post with similar outcome. Removed original user and recreated account. Computer now works fine, but I have lost all my original settings, which I re-entered. Question is, I had Photos and MP3s in home directory of original user which are'nt there anymore, no problem as I can reload from CD backup. But here's the funny thing, if I run "locate *.mp3" or "locate *.jpg in a terminal, it comes back with a list of MP3 or JPG directories in my Home directory which simply are'nt there, where is it getting it's information from. Also running kdiskfree seems to show they are still there but can't see them in Konqueror? Do I need to remount these directories, or somehow incorporate them into the directory structure, but they are there according to "locate".
