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.

whats yr favoret GUI and why
i was just board and wile im still triping my way through x configing i though it world be cool to know what gui ppl like and why or if u dont use a gui and why personaly (only linux ever got farenuf for a gui was drake 8.2) was out of windows maker,gnome,ice sumthing, free sumthing, and kde3 was kde gnome just seems wayyyyy too much like windowz and seems a little to cluttered with useles menus and things i liked kde cuz of the configurability of the gui. im extreamly intrested in seeing enlightinment
Right now Im using gnome2.2 ,ROX Filer (with pinboard) and sawfish.
This week Ive been through various combinations of fluxbox, kicker panels, gnome-panel, metacity and gnome-session. I always use ROX Filer though instead of nautilus.
For years I used gnome and enlightenment, but enlightenment isnt gnome-compliant any more since gnome2 so ive been wandering.
I might actually switch to gnme2 and sawfish permanently the 2.5.65 kernel that Im using now makes the desktop a little more snappy and sawfish windows no longer have the "sticky" behaviour when you move them around.
I'm a KDE user, but I liked Window Maker and fluxbox back when I tried them. Yes, I like to tinker with stuff, but when it comes to Linux, it was nice to see a ready-to-go GUI. I may delve into fluxbox some more while keeping KDE by my side.
No it's not that slow, but slower-still takes a few seconds to load everything before being '100% Up and running', while Flux seems relatively instant.
KDE is more userfriendly to the newly converted, but once I learn the Flux config options I'm sure I'll use it much more.
