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.

Patience young padawan Seriously, there have been a few internal issues at Mandriva (servers going down), I think that has now been resolved and we can expect 2008 very soon (sorry I can't give you an exact date). But while you wait, perhaps you would like to further 'wet your appetite' by reading a nice article on what to expect. : http://artipc10.vub.ac.be/serendipit...va-2008.0.html
Adam Will - Glad to hear it's not November... and I hope it all goes smoothly.
What is the real advantage of buying a version of Mandiva over the free one? I've been using Linux and mostly Mandrake/mandriva for quite a while, and feel that it would be nice to contribute in some way to the cause... I'm not up to any coding so thought I paid verion would help a little. So wondering what to really expect?
For those of you who are impatient to get started with Mandriva Linux 2008, good news: the Free and Powerpack ISOs are finalized and are being made available to the early seeders program right now. We need a few days for the early seeders to get downloaded and set up to seed, so the official public release will happen at the start of next week. Watch this space! The One ISOs are taking a little longer to complete, but will be available for the official release at the same time as the others. 07-10-07
for those of you who are like me..... you'll find the 2008.0 free there just make sure you seed it back.... I'm already downloading it... remember enable DHT in you're bittorent client cauz'e there is NO CONNECTION to the tracker and you'll have to wait a couple of minutes untill the download starts. I'm downloading the x86-64 version...
