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.

This may or not be the place to put this however: Soi recently bought a tablet from amazon.com (the above mentioned) only to find out that it will come with 2.1 aka eclair. i am worried there will not be an update for it, as a precaution i download a few .apk 's from my G1 and MyTouch(3G) that will hopefully cause it to update such as the update manager and some system apk but, if that doesn't work i want to be able to update it manually. I would really perfer to use an official release (so to speak) but if i have to i will use a custom one. I guess it would be could to mention i have the sdk manager stuff for WinVista
On a side note: does anyone have an online customizer for android...that is to say a website where i could maybe tweak smaller aspects that i wouldn't be able to on the phone its self...pre installed apps removing certain apps etc etc? sounds like a good idea if nothin else right?
Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. There is no generic update for Android, the OS has to be customized for each specific device it runs on. So unless somebody makes 2.3+ for the Coby Kyros, you are out of luck.
The closest thing I can find is this tutorial on installing CyanogenMod on the 7015 (I am assuming that's what you have). Looks like it is working pretty well, at least at the time this was written.
I apologize for the multiple post it because i became aware of the mobile thread after the fact and i don't know how to move it however thank for the link. With this knowledge how would i customize the rom myself to make it fit the coby? could i use the sdk manager to do so? are there tutorials?
also there are alot of bugs with this current mod i'll wait till it becomes more stable though.
