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.

okay, I put slack 3.5 on an old machine (cause I wanted to play with it, don't ask). anyway, I noticed that my system time is off by an hour (damn daylight savings). What command would i use to fix this?
Yes, I'm still a newbie, my only experience is in RH 7.2 and 8.0

If your system keeps losing (or gaining) time, and your machines are
networked, you can run a time server daemon on one machine and
have your old system pick up the correct time every N seconds.
xntpd (or ntpd).
alright, I'll look into it, they're not networked yet, I had to download the kernel and developmental packages first using my old 33.6, but I have them now, I'm recompiling my kernel as we speak, when I network it to my red hat box, I'll look into it, thanks for the info.
