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'm a newbie in Linux. I did KNOPPIX 4.0.2 HD installation succesfully. The problem is that I could not get apt works properly. Does any one there ever get this work? Is that possible anyone could share the sources.list?
there should be a source list in etc/apt,u might have to uncomment them,do u have a firewall running?u might need to adjust that too.n what do u mean it doesnt work properly?what doesnt it do?im just a newbie but maybe i can help.
I'm trying to set up LAN file and printer sharing system. It seem Samba
is a good package for my purpose. But I could not get it using apt-get. Below is my sources.list, Does anybody know which address should I use to get Samba?
Wow, I'm really glad I checked this thread. I was not aware that the debian-marillat repository had changed. I changed it, and got an update of w32codecs (and yes, I was thrilled). Anyway, I run Debian Sarge, but I have some packages from unstable and/or testing to satisfy dependencies for a couple of newer programs I installed. To be able to upgrade both the stable programs, and the unstable/testing programs, I have a preferences file that allows for Sarge to be maintained even with unstable and testing repositories activited in the sources.list:
# cdroms, in case the internet goes down
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 r1 _Sarge_ - Official i386 Binary-2 (20051220)]/ unstable main
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 r1 _Sarge_ - Official i386 Binary-1 (20051220)]/ unstable contrib main
