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.

As a new Slackware user, I have been able to read many threads (about 425 of them), and get a better idea on the whole linux platform (being a Microsoft addict for 25 years). I have come to love Linux and only wish now I would have started out years ago using it's powerful capabilities. With this under my belt though, I have managed to code a 2048-bit encryption/decryption program without using "conventional" techniques. Linux--or should I say Slackware, has given me the tools I needed to finish this project of about 10 years. Where Using Microsoft I was always missing something. Anyway, my program is able to decrypt files that I didn't even know could be decrypted. I've tested it extensively and have had a few friends send me ecrypted files that they thought were impossible to decrypt. While most would think my algorythim is a little shady I was wondering what other Linux user though about me tying to Alpha test it with everyone else. I would allow users to download it and tell me what bugs they've found and to what extent the program can decrypt. I won't go into any detail about the code or the algorithm, but I just wanted to get some ideas from this forum. Thank you!
