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 am looking for recommendations for a good graphical file manager that works well in fluxbox. This file manager needs to be able to explore and browse files, cut, copy, paste, file properties, etc. I do not have kde or gnome installed, so please do not mention any that are associated with them.

I use Rox-Filer http://rox.sourceforge.net/desktop/ROX-Filer as my graphical file-manager in Fluxbox. It is extremely fast and very light.
