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.

Packages for deb or rpm-based distros, along with Slitaz or puppy Linux are found here: Other packages
This version includes only a few minor changes But, it's been a while since the last release so it seemed worth releasing.
As always, if you have any prolems or questions I can be e-mailed directly at: amigo [AT] ibiblio [DOT] org
Please put the word 'src2pkg' in the subject line so your email doesn't get lost with the spam. Please report any problems as soon as possible.

Maybe 'large flaming testicles' would sound better??!! Or maybe the reference is to a fire department dance...
"May you improve it forever." I like that, but I am glad that most of my stupendous ideas for it have either been implemented or rejected -makes me less nervous at relase time. Most of the recent work has been aimed at the less-used features of src2pkg -like supporting other formats, package-splitting, etc.
I've also built a compact distro using src2pkg for everything except gcc and glibc. If anyone is interested or needs a reference src2pkg build script for some basic package, everything can be found here: Keep It Simple, Sir ... don't expect to find an installer or ISO's there, though -still to be done. A running system can be created, though, assuming you are pretty good at shoe-horning things...
