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.

Ranted at too many systems and OS until I loaded Slackware-3 onto my AMD486-DX100 [I didn't have enough floppies and my modem was 14.4k, so a friend (Slackware? wazzat?) burned the CD image after d/l at 56K]. Switched completely with 10 and SLAMD64.
Location: Northeastern Michigan, where Carhartt is a Designer Label
Distribution: Slackware 32- & 64-bit Stable

Dang, kids, this is what's going to happen to you! That's what old people are for -- so you'll know what you've got to look forward to! I can remember stuff from 50 years ago but the last five minutes is all a blur.
