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.

I have fixed this several times on other boxes,...
Thanks to LQ for giving a free blog to all subscribers! With this additional encouragement I can use this space to talk about my Linux-related ideas, experience and comments and hopefully get community feedback.
I worked as a linux admin on and off even though it's not my primary specialization. I have five computers at home, all of which has at least one linux partition. Out of those, my closet server may be of special interest because it lives in a closet and I attached it a dryer...
