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.

I just climbed up a wrung on the linux ladder. I installed Slack 9 over my old RH9, and did all the partitioning stuff with a fair amount of confidence. I was just curious about a few things. Someone want to explain to me what the heck that default file system is? Also.. Gnome/Kde?
Slack seems to have a steeper learning curve.. yep. I'tll be good though, as I'll be forced to learn more.
Slackware is so cool it makes me crap my pants.
How did they fit so much coolness on one cd? Redhat was cool, but not as cool.. and that was 3 CD's! It makes me sick, thinking about how much I love Linux. I mean, I really do. If I had a wife, I'd want her to be like linux.. i'd call her tux, instead of honey. it's much more endearing, don't you think?
slackware defaults to ext3 or reiserfs, can't remember
1) you are way to excited, slack is what I learned on and the only one I use even after 4-5 years. but you are obsessed
2) less /etc/fstab that will tell you what file systems you are using.
3) if you mean linux startup-scriopt flavor it is called bsd-style
4) it is cool and makes redhat look like week old barf a mac user lef t behind.
5) I recommend using enlightenment, unfortunetly it is removed in slack 9, if you want to learn some stuff about compiling and installing in slack d-load it at www.enlightenment.org (get 16.5 not 17) I will personally help you if you encounter problems.
LOL I do nto mean mac users in general, I meant the kind that would handcuff themselves to the mac plant to keep it from being torn down, or the kind that spend all day talkign about how great macs are without ever doign anything else on them. and also those that have no life other than preaching mac. I ahve a friend (macmonk on aol messenger if you want to bug him) who is all that compressed in one.
I picked reiserfs.. it was default, so I went with it. Can I get a little more info on it? I was really happy to see all of my options. Kernels.. Windows Managers.. It really was interesting. I suppose I'll have to educate myself as to what they actually are, so I don't feel so damn clueless when I'm installing.
