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.

Thanks for the article, a very concise and to the point, I've always expected Patric to be this way. He made a good point about binary only distribtions and signing non-disclosure statements when you test drive a beta release, I agree with him 100% it might conradict with GNU GPL, and FSF standards.
In your opinion ppl, do you think distros' mirror ftp servers would charge for downloading linux?
I, personally, don't have a problem with it, I've chosen linux not because it is free as in beer. It is for a good cause.
even though I've downloaded 8.1, and it's been running in my box for a while now, Slackware is gonna be in my Christmass list this year, just to help Patrick Volkerding out a little bit. Humm, what are the chances the next version is gonna be ready for Christmass??
