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.

Downloaded the latest openbsd 5.7 install floppy. There is now one less machine running Microsoft product.
Found an interesting quirk with grep. On Debian it is not a big deal, but with Arch it is. You need to add the -a argument on Arch Linix if you want to scrape a file of text and get results instead of just a match flag, Either way works with Debian Linux.

Just finished running the slackeware 14.1 update on my old Pentium 1 586. The wordpress update is taking a bit longer. Have tried to install all the old CL favorites like sc, but my favorite install is Freebasic. Have been able to port so much of my old software. Need to copy all my new batch files especially the page scrapers. Also installed is the web server for use as a doc server. When I did the install I did it with a pxeboot to a directory on the web server and the internet did the rest....
