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 don't know if there's a newer version of Debian, but the CDs I have all have old, old stuff. I'm sure apt-get may be able to upgrade to the newer versions, but I only had it upgrade to newer versions of that version.. that doesn't sound right but you know what I mean.. lol
ah, I was just curious. I'm happy with slack on this machine, but I have another one being built right now so I may put debian 3.0r1 which is what I have on it. Was just thinking all these gui installs etc are making it easier and easier to get into linux.
I tried Debian several times and always went back to slackware... dunno, I think it is Slack's simplicity that I don't find in Debian. I do not doubt that Debian is an excellent and highly stable server distro, but I don't really like it as an Workstation.
Still, Debian was my first and I'll always want to try it again and again. Maybe it is the fact that there are no ISO's available for the unstable, I dunno...
