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.

"Zenwalk 6.2 has been released. Zenwalk 6.2 is mostly new code (nearly all packages have been updated), and the base system has been slightly modified (ext4, Linux kernel 188.8.131.52). The switch to LZMA for package compression has reduced the overall size of the ISO image (490 MB) while allowing us to provide more applications and drivers. Here's a summary of the other important changes: the new XFCE 4.6.1; OpenOffice.org 3.1.0 (fast, optimized version); new Netpkg featuring a refined interface, rollback support and instant install with dependencies control; a complete set of HP printers drivers are included; faster boot (tuned init scripts); bus auto-detection in the installer (will choose appropriate kernel depending on the architecture, SATA, PATA, SCSI)."
