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.

if anybody know anything about getting this Aureal built-in sound card working, I'm all ears? Any links or sites are welcome!
I started off installing Xorg along with Fluxbox just to...
I just finish getting this Clear Spot to work using my current Win XP desktop USB port. My next project will see how it works with Linux.
The Clear Spot is a 4G personal hotspot that lets you connect up to 8 wireless devices, everywhere you go in the Clear coverage area.
I had been using the On-the-Go USB wireless device but wasn't satisfied since it wouldn't work with Linux or PPC Macs, so I decided to switch for a home modem at first but noticed the hot spot router....
