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.

Just tried to install a Win 8 VM from a source .img on an NTFS partition. This fails with a permission denied error despite the permissions on this file being full rwxrwxrwx.
Actual error is:
Unable to complete install: 'internal error Process exited while reading console log output: char device redirected to /dev/pts/2
qemu-kvm: -drive file=/mnt/Source/OS/Windows/Win8.img,if=none,media=cdrom,id=drive-ide0-1-0,readonly=on,format=raw: could not open disk image /mnt/Source/OS/Windows/Win8.img: Permission denied
Any suggestions apart from copying that file into /home first and installing from there.
I think the problem is because virt-manager runs as the 'qemu' user & 'qemu' group. This user does not have access to the /mnt/Source directory which is user: root, group: users. I have tried adding 'qemu' to the 'users' group but still that doesn't seem to work.
