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.

Well, since my last post on building <a href="http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/">LFS 6.2</a>, I've completed chapter 5 with no further problems and moved on to chapter 6.

So about a month ago I got SimplyMEPIS installed and haven't used WinD'OHs since (well, except for my scanner ::shrugs:: whatcha gonna do??? lol).
So, I'm back to trying Linux From Scratch again, but this time...
If you plan to build a LFS system, I recommend using the LFS LiveCD. And why not? It was developed to build a LFS system specifically. The live CD comes with everything you need to build your LFS system, including the book which you need to follow in order to build it and all packages and patches necessary. A live CD also gives you the ability to use a completely blank hard drive for your installation and I don't think you can actually screw up a live CD like you can an installed distribution (someone...
Here is my first blog on this forum. Since I have been enjoying this site since I found it, I figured "might as well"... This blog will show the fun and headaches in building a Linux From Scratch (LFS) system from the eyes of someone who is VERY new to Linux.
Since this blog is being written as I learn, the "teachings" may jump around from time to time. Eventually this "tutorial" will be posted to the Do It Yourself portion of my site, and will be more...
