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'm asking some pretty basic questions here, but I have good reason to start using SuSe. I've used it before and really did like it, but I'm not a big fan of KDE and it seemed as though Suse did not have everyday CLI tools available to the public. A situation has arisen where I need to be familiar with Suse, but again, I can't find my everyday CLI tools such as nano and yes I'm too embarrassed to ask my flesh and blood friends. I'm using the net install of 9.2 current.
Where can a guy get more packages such as nano? I'm looking for supplementary repos for more packages, not necessarily a link to the nano site.
nano wasn't available from the repos I had listed. I like jed too, but it's not available either.
From the literature i read about Suse, they should be available. The free version says it only has about 900 packages available, while the pro version has something like 4000. Surely someone has made these GPL'd packages available to the public.
I'm not adverse to buying Suse, but I use "current" which a CD release can never duplicate.
