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.

That is a fine link to the temporary (I think temporary) replacement Forum while the one hosted by Murga is down. It is very important to try to hold the peer-support community together.
I don't know what is the history of the hate-fest against Puppy in general, and Murga in specific, it is very sad and is a terrible waste of time and energy.
Meanwhile, I have been using many different Puppy puplets for many years and have always found the folks on the Murga-hosted Forum, and Barry's blog, to be helpful and Puppy a wonderful resource.
Fluppy 013/Puppeee were amazing contributions for netbooks and laptops from Jemimah, but her military duties made it impossible for her to continue. Squeeze 5x9 is also a wonderful puplet, and I believe they are about to release a version for dual-processors. For 64-bit there's Fatdog and LHP (I forget the version).
Stay the course and ride-out this temporary storm - there are more good things ahead for Puppy Linux!
Jemimah will be working towards an actual Saluki alpha release over this Christmas period. She intends to set it up in such a way that she is not essential to the project . . .
Should be fun http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Saluki

The 412collection.co.uk domain name expires on 7th July 2015 and will not be renewed. In gratitude to Puppy Linux I will do my best to keep it up and running for those who find it useful. So 412collection.co.uk will move permenantly to free hosting at http://neocities.org/ and will not be activly maintained. However if anyone who wishes to contribute dotpets or anything else Puppy-4.1.2 related feel free to contact me and I will be happy to include them here.
I've never looked back since first embarking with Puppy 525. Too impatient for precise 5.7.1 to ever get itself and it's rubbish broken ppm sorted out so gave up on it after not very long, went back to my faithful 525 puppy uninstalled everything i had ever installed other than the preinstalled stuff (have always been very wary of stuffing up dependencies ) and just compiled all newly installed from source, and as long as the whole family of apps,pets,sfs and whatever else I could get my grubby little paws on and convince to join in and live happily ever after on mount home(mnt/home) I'm happy as pigs in! Save file remains relatively small and all symlinks work! Barry I am not worthy you truly are a genius! I hope I can continue to bring people round to this wonderfully quite extraordinary little distro that is puppy Linux. I say this even as I type on an IPad. Trust me the honey moon period will wear off, this is 1st gen tech here and no further upgrades other than what is already on here iOS5 whatever, so it can't last forever. Doesn't matter I'll just jailbreak her when i reach that point and slap on some brilliant little puppy derivative like Jemimas fantastic saluki puppy or something touch screen friendly? Any suggestions for future ref???? Peace out my pups, squeal you later ;-)
