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.

Picked up my DVD on Saturday at the Post Office. NICE small mailer...hopefully saves Pat and the gang some shipping costs.
The CD set was picked up today, and shipped in same ole Priority Mail box. I'm impressed with the improved CD case. No broken tabs and all the discs were securely held in place. I quickly re-arranged the cd order to 5-1-2-3-4-6, since I don't access the source CD's often.
Now to decide which of my systems I want to upgrade!
Yuk, mine had styrofoam peanuts in it. Not a lot, but still, nobody else uses those anymore. CDs being nearly indestructible (the 6-CD case will break way before the CDs), I think it is unnecessary, and eco-unfriendly.
Mine is still setting in the package it arrived in. Considering how rarely I upgrade software, it may be two or three years before I even open it. Then again, maybe I'll change my habits and do the upgrade before the end of this year. Ah... decisions, decisions.
