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.

Yes, I know what it is. The last time I used Chromium was in Crunchbang Statler I think, when I believe it was included by default - and I remember launching it via `google-chrome` or something similar. Try it.
turns out by default, chromium is not allowed to run as root unless you do "#chrome --user-data-dir #some dir# (I put '/root/chromium', not sure that makes sense, which I believe(hopefully) it can be updated later on"
